American Selfie: One Nation Divisible Through the Lens of Alexandra Pelosi

What does America look like to you right now?

To Alexandra Pelosi, the award-winning filmmaker and daughter of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rome is burning in flames of unabashed narcissism; gleeful consumerism; an unchecked pandemic; and the gaping fault lines of race, class, gender and partisanship. And that was before the 2020 election!

Join the Emmy-winning documentarian for a discussion on American Selfie: One Nation Shoots Itself and about the dangerous refusal of so many Americans to see the country from the perspective of those who aren’t members of their own “tribe.”

Alexandra Pelosi has been touring America, camera in tow, since 2000. She has shot, directed and produced 15 films.

Moderated by Sheila Nevins, Head of Documentary Films of MTV Studios.
