Originally produced by Frederick Wiseman (Zipporah) in 2006.
STATE LEGISLATURE shows the day-to-day activities of the Idaho Legislature during an entire session. Lobbyists, lawmakers and their constituents are seen debating and discussing the concerns of the electorate, on issues that range from violence in schools, mad cow disease and video voyeurism to illegal immigration, secondhand smoke and the deregulation of telephone rates. The film is an example of the achievements, values, constraints and limitations of the democratic process.. "Every scene builds a profound, still-blossoming story about liberty and the democratic process . . . this film is valuable to disaffected skeptics, too, because Wiseman reveals how ordinary people wrestle to make our law . . ." ́ Dan Popkey, The Idaho Stateman
