The Reunited States is a new documentary about reconnecting Americans to each other, inspired by Mark Gerzon‘s book of the same name. It’s produced by Van Jones and Meghan McCain, and it comes out on February 9.
Via the show’s description:
At a time when America is ripping apart at the seams, “The Reunited States” is a powerful and urgent documentary that follows the unsung heroes on the difficult journey of bridging our political and racial divides. Susan Bro, who lost her daughter when a car drove through a crowd in Charlottesville, and David and Erin Leaverton, a Republican couple who travel to all fifty states in an RV to find out what divides us, are just a few of the characters profiled in the film. Each of these bridge-builders have realized that while our divides run deeper than they ever could have imagined, so does the love and hope to bring our country back together. Based on the book of the same name, the film urges us to consider that everyone has a role to play in reuniting the country.
As it says in the trailer, the issues we face are not so much dividing between right and left, but between old and new. We have to help others see a new way of thinking if we are to survive as a country.
