BE THE ANSWER IN 2024
ABOUT THE FILM
What is the glue that holds a society together?
Following numerous subjects from December 2016, The American Question
examines the insidious roots of American polarization and distrust —
in a desperate search for a path forward.
Guided by an all-star lineup of experts, including Amy Chua (Day of Empire),
Colin Woodard (American Nations), Yuval Levin (The Fractured Republic)
and Yascha Mounk (The People vs. Democracy), The American Question
reframes the heightened stakes of the 2024 election, through revisiting
the last 8 years of civic discord, revealing new revelations
on how decades of decline dissolved public trust —
presenting solutions to restore our democracy.
James Kicklighter (The Sound of Identity) directs The American Question
with a creative team including producer Guy Seemann, an international political consultant, director of photography Jonathan Pope (Emmy® Award Nominee,
The Social Dilemma), editors Mohamed El Manasterly (Emmy® Award Winner,
The Square), J.D. Sievertson ("Cosmos") and Carlos Puga (Emmy® Award Winner, “True Life"), featuring original animation and graphics by Filmograph
(Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Candyman, Promising Young Woman).
