An­gry, White and Amer­i­can

A coun­try look­ing to Don­ald Trump for an­swers is a coun­try in cri­sis. So what ails white Amer­ica? This film – by the Guardian’s Gary Younge – takes the US’S rag­ing tem­per­a­ture and finds lit­tle cause for op­ti­mism. From pre­pos­ter­ous white su­prem­a­cist Richard Spencer to the de­spon­dent res­i­dents of the rust belt, Younge im­bibes a toxic cock­tail of iden­tity cri­sis, eco­nomic de­cline, con­fu­sion about the past and dread of the fu­ture. Not pretty but es­sen­tial.
