"Trump, Minneapolis, and the Divided State of America" – Independent journalist & filmmaker Brandon Ferdig talks about his latest documentary

What Then Must We Do?

Bretigne Shaffer Podcast

I speak with independent journalist and filmmaker Brandon Ferdig, about what’s really going on in Minneapolis in the aftermath of the riots, and about his upcoming documentary about why our society seems more divided than ever before.

One year ago, the polarization of American politics was on vivid display at Trump’s re-election kick-off event in Minneapolis. Here Brandon Ferdig interviewed eager attendees and angry demonstrators; he captured the protests outside and scenes from the rally floor inside.

And yet this was just the start to the past year’s chaos.

This film then turns to 2020, where events have only furthered this divide and heightened the emotion in our country.

Where did this craziness come from? And what do we do about it?

“Trump, Minneapolis, and the Divided State of America” explains how we got to this point of such polarization in the U.S. Finally, it shares how we can reverse this trajectory and come back together as a society.
