Library to Host Screening of Michigan Divided Documentary

In uncommon times, is there still common ground? This documentary captures our deeply divided culture, but also illustrates that there still some shared values. A guided discussion will follow the film.
Library to Host Screening of Michigan Divided Documentary

The White Lake Community Library is partnering with Bridge Magazine, the nonpartisan and nonprofit winner of “Michigan’s Best Newspaper” in 2016 and 2017, to screen the new documentary Michigan Divided.  The event will be held on Monday, October 8, at 6:30 p.m.  There is no cost to attend.

 Michigan Divided is a 45 minute exploration of political division in Michigan. Filmed throughout 2017, the film follows six Michigan families across political, socioeconomic and racial lines. What can the state’s residents agree on? And how can we work together for a better future? After the film there will be a guided discussion on the movie’s themes and what steps we can take to resolve the state’s political division.

 This event is a part of Bridge Magazine’s Michigan Truth Tour, a statewide roadshow attempting to ground the upcoming state election in fact and discussion of the state's most important issues. Throughout 2018, their Michigan Truth Squad is visiting more than 100 communities across the state, ensuring all residents have equal access to reliable information they need to prepare to vote.
