At a time of immense division, PURPLE tells the story of Americans with opposing viewpoints confronting their disagreements head-on and discovering the concerns and experiences that lie behind each other’s positions.  Filmed in rural Wisconsin and Iowa – in a swing region within two bordering swing states – PURPLE presents a rare political conversation that uplifts, provokes, and inspires while going toward the heat of passionate political differences.

As the presidential election and its aftermath fan the flames of already-volatile divisions, PURPLE offers a vision for what a healthy public debate on fault-line issues might look like.
