The film is a thorough investigation into the partisanship that is paralyzing American politics. Writer, director and producer Kelly Nyks has spent eight years traveling the country to ask questions that go to the heart of why our democracy has become so passionately divided. The U.S. State Department used the film to launch an Election 2012 program that introduces high school students abroad to American democracy and our political process.</p> Thu, 01 Nov 2012 14:10:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 51136 at http://wamc.org Split: A Deeper Divide - a film by Kelly Nyks
