Director Kelly Nyks took a road trip approach to exploring the concept of political divides via cultural elements, media and campaign strategies in “Split: A Divided America” back in 2008, and now, just in time for the 2012 presidential election, he’s back for a look at an even deeper divide within American society.
Similar to “A Divided America,” “Split: A Deeper Divide” offers up a portrait of a nation that’s divided more so than ever. Nyks talks to a number of political leaders including former Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, Lawrence Lessig of the Foundation of Ethics, Thomas Frank of the Wall Street Journal, and more about the overabundance of bitterness drowning both modern politics and society. The film doesn’t just highlight the headlines; it goes far deeper in an effort to explore why we’re left with two Americas.
