Katie Davison’s new documentary THE SOUL OF AMERICA, based on Jon Meacham’s 2018 bestselling book of the same name, illuminates our present-day, fraught political reality by exploring historical challenges of the past. Examining the women’s suffrage movement, the incarceration of Japanese Americans, McCarthyism, and the struggle to pass Civil Rights legislation in the 1960s, the film brings America’s legacy of political exclusion and struggle into sharp focus, calling upon citizens of today to embrace the “better angels” of our shared national ideals in order to create a democracy that works for all of us, together.
