Waking the Sleeping Giant: The Making of a Political Revolution

WATCH THE TRAILER ! Waking the Sleeping Giant tells the story of the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and the effort to build a reenergized progressive political movement in the United States, grappling with the urgent question of “where do we go from here?” From the presidential campaign trail with Bernie Sanders to a local race in the failing economy of rural West Virginia, from a mass sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps to racially charged police commission hearings in Los Angeles, Waking the Sleeping Giant makes sense of this remarkable moment in American politics, probing the extraordinary discontent of the past two years, Donald Trump’s dramatic electoral victory, and the challenges ahead.
