Postcards From the Great Divide

Video; Streaming Video; Online
Examining the deeply partisan split among the American electorate, the series travels to key locations across the US to help provide a greater understanding of how changing demographics and political self-sorting will continue to have a profound effect on American politics for years to come. Black voters in Florida hesitating to vote; urban and rural Minnesota residents distancing themselves based on political views; Wisconsin ex-legislators ruing the intense ideological splits that have turned the once congenial state into a partisan battleground – stories like these come alive in the hands of a roster of talented documentary filmmakers. ..Each *Postcard* challenges conventional wisdom and guides the average viewer towards clearer understanding of the sometimes-mysterious ways political demography has become destiny...*Postcards* from the Great Divide is brought to you by the award-winning team of Louis Alvarez, Andrew Kolker, and Paul Stekler, who have been responsible for some of the most respected political documentaries of the past twenty years. They are two-time Peabody Award and three-time DuPont-Columbia Award winning creators of such films as Vote for Me: Politics in America, Getting Back to Abnormal, and People Like Us.
