Kelly Nyks

Split: A Divided America
Feb 17, 2011  -  West-Indisch Huis, Herenmarkt 99, Amsterdam

KN3Dutch politics is all about consensus–which is one reason Dutch people find American politics so bizarre. The shooting in Arizona of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords last month–in which 6 people were murdered–brought new attention to the crisis underlying American politics. A special screening of a documentary that explores the great political divide that threatens to pull America apart. In “Split: A Divided America,” filmmaker Kelly Nyks travels the U.S., asking ordinary people and political leaders the same series of questions about the country and its values…and gets very different answers.
