American is innovation, and I think it’s about the people. It’s full of innovators.

“AMERICAN is”, a short film series by BLDWN identifies a unique and diverse group of individuals, from all walks of life, who were asked to answer the question, “American is _____”? The responses were as beautiful and inspiring as those we heard from.

We hope you enjoy what they shared.
