Sep 19, 2022 | Timothy L. Stewart

The trailer to “The Flagmakers” was released on September 16, 2022.  This documentary is about Eder Flag, a 100% Employee-Owned company in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.  As the name would lead one to believe, Eder Flag is one of the nation’s leading makers of American flags, and a significant number of its employees are immigrants to the U.S.  The movie is expected to have a successful run at various film festivals and likely be considered for an Academy Award.  You can see the trailer here.

Also, Giannis Antetokounmpo has signed on as the Executive Producer of the film.
