Part travelogue, part human analysis, and fully All-American, CHEESEHEADS:THE DOCUMENTARY takes viewers on a humorous and intimate journey through factories, farms, museums, breweries and boardrooms in order to explore Cheesehead culture and the people who have taken that moniker from local to global as a proud symbol of Wisconsin.

After two decades away, filmmaker John Mitchell returns to Wisconsin, the place of his youth, to discover the deeper meaning of being a Cheesehead. While many associate the term with sports, cheese and beer, Mitchell’s film highlights the hard-working and generous people behind the once harsh now affectionate term, who embody the very values on which the heartland of America was built.
