On Jan. 17-18, 2017, Frontline premiered “Divided States of America,” a four-hour, two-night documentary miniseries that looks back at events during the Obama presidency that have revealed deep divisions in America, and examines the America the next president will inherit.
Now, the film is available to stream in its entirety here.
“Divided States” offers an in-depth view of the partisanship that gridlocked Washington and charged the 2016 presidential campaign, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle, and the racial tensions that have erupted throughout the country.
Drawing on extensive new interviews with White House and Congressional insiders from both parties, as well as Frontline’s vast body of reporting on the Obama era, “Divided States” digs into the causes of America’s intense polarization and questions how the next president and Congress can govern in an era of complex challenges. This television event, led by veteran Frontline filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team, tells a revealing story that’s not just about Barack Obama’s presidency, but about America itself.
