Battleground (USA, 56 min.) Trailer:
Synopsis: Battleground is an intimate look at our current political divide, as seen through the eyes of two grassroots activists in the pivot counties of the Lehigh Valley, PA. Tom Carroll is a Trump delegate, and a Tea Party Chairman. Greg Edwards is a Black pastor, and a progressive leader supported by Bernie Sanders. When their paths collide, we realize that they have much more in common than meets the eye. Over the course of three years of filming we came to realize that their primary struggle was not against each other, but against the political machines that control their respective parties. "Battleground" is an antidote to the media echo chamber effect, which is marked by passion, but often devoid of understanding.
