ABOUT THE FILM
What is the glue that holds a society together?
Following numerous subjects since December 2016, The American Question examines the root of American polarization and the repercussions of eroded civic institutions, public trust and leadership - revealing pathways forward to solve the problem.
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), we examine the broader arc
of history and discover new revelations about the shared values system
that binds society together in times of triumph and turmoil.
