From celebrated filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi comes a visceral cross-country journey during one of the most tumultuous years in history: AMERICAN SELFIE: One Nation Shoots Itself. Chilling in its foreshadowing, the film fearlessly enters the heart of a nation and reflects back urgent, and at times, uncomfortable, truths. Placing viewers directly within the most consequential events of our era, Pelosi takes the pulse of the country capturing the fervor of this precise moment. Powerful and provocative, AMERICAN SELFIE raises critical questions about the stark divisions in how Americans feel, and asks if it’s possible to ever find a way to a more perfect union.

Pelosi’s journey begins taking the temperature of America in a massively consequential election year, yet as previously unimaginable perils engulf the land, she bravely captures the rising tensions among warring factions of a nation on an existential precipice.

Executive produced by Sheila Nevins, AMERICAN SELFIE is directed and produced by Pelosi, who also served as cinematographer. Chris O’Coin edited the film. Pelosi’s previous documentaries include OUTSIDE THE BUBBLE: ON THE ROAD WITH ALEXANDRA PELOSI, THE WORDS THAT BUILT AMERICA, MEET THE DONORS: DOES MONEY TALK? and 2002’s Emmy-nominated JOURNEYS WITH GEORGE, about George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign.
