48 min • Society, Politics & World Affairs • 2017
In this documentary, we explore the construction of the American Dream and uncover the reality of exclusion and denial. The election of Donald Trump in November 2016 exposed a deep vein of distrust across the U.S., where millions became disillusioned with a political and corporate elite out of touch with the sentiments of ordinary Americans. The institutions that serve U.S. citizens are increasingly regarded as self-serving while the people are increasingly divided and polarised along racial and economic lines.
