2022 Donald Brittain Award for Best Social/Political Documentary Program

Share on:

The events of Jan 6 on the US Capitol shook the foundations of democracy for many. This smart and bold explainer doc looks at how we got there; from the cable wars, to the Trump effect, fake news to the politicization of masks during the covid crisis, and politicization of protests in the 2020 racial reckoning of the BLM movement. A reality check with deep and frightening connections made.
