The Flagmakers

35 mins


The small community of Oak Creek, Wisconsin is home to Eder Flag, the country’s largest American flag and flagpole factory. Refugees and immigrants from Afghanistan, Serbia, Nigeria, Guatemala, Pakistan and Iraq, who have risked everything to come to the US, sew American flags alongside their midwestern co-workers. Sewing manager Radica, a Serbian immigrant, believes every flag has a soul. As tensions escalate across the nation, the flagmakers reflect on the question: Who is the flag for?
