The State of America (2016)

The State of America (2016)

All eyes turn to America as the presidential race to be the 45th President of the United States plays out. From a distance, this vast and powerful country can sometimes seem redolent with contradictions and division – gender, race, class, security domestic and international - but what is it really like coast to coast? Cosmologist and writer Janna Levin and historical novelist, essayist and critic Thomas Mallon join iconic feminist and journalist Gloria Steinem to take the measure of their homeland, foreign and domestic – and to explain what gives with Trump. Chaired by Guyon Espiner.
