This urgent, nuanced look travels across the US to explore how Americans tell the story of their Civil War. Filmed from President Obama's final year in office through 2019, it paints a multi-faceted portrait of the American psyche and the deep roots of our turbulent times. With delicacy and strength, subtlety and determination, CIVIL WAR portrays a nation in denial, haunted by an embittered past and the stories it refuses to tell.

"In this time of reckoning in the country, Rachel Boynton's journey into the heart of Civil War memory reveals just how contested, and personal, the meaning of this defining event in our history remains." - Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
