Description
For his thought-provoking, four-part series from 2008, historian Simon Schama travelled through the U.S. to dig deep into the conflicts of its history as a way to understand the country's current political situation. "American Plenty" looks at the waning belief in the infinite possibilities of the country's land and resources, while "American War" considers how different the U.S. attitude to war is from what outsiders assume it to be. "American Fervour" explores how faith has shaped political life, and "What Is an American?" looks at the bitter conflict over immigration.

"The American Future weaves through the nation's interior, exposing conflict and trepidation in a country still fighting to understand itself.... It is textured with interviews, historical footage and sweeping cinematography to illuminate the U.S. landscape.... [Schama] met farmers and migrants, liberals and conservatives who were united in their concern for the country's future."LATimes
