"FRITZ" has been broadcast several times on TPT (Twin Cities Public TV) and other PBS stations around the U.S. and has been used for educational screenings to encourage young people to get involved in public service. Recently, a section of “FRITZ” screened in Washington D.C. at a tribute to Walter Mondale’s legacy sponsored by the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. The documentary has also screened to packed houses at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis(click here to see a picture of director Melody Gilbert with Walter Mondale during the Q and A)and at George Washington University in Washington D.C.
