Filmmakers Annabel Park and Eric Byler discuss their new film, 'Story of America: A Nation Divided'

For the past several months, all eyes have been on North Carolina. The state has received an abundance of national coverage since the start of Moral Mondays as a response to this legislative session.

Filmmakers Annabel Park and Eric Byler took notice of the political struggles in North Carolina, as well as the growth of protests and dissatisfaction with government across the nation. Annabel and Eric have since set out to make a feature film, "Story of America: A Nation Divided," about the current conflicts in North Carolina.

Annabel Park is a director and producer for "Story of America: A Nation Divided." Annabel joins Host Frank Stasio to talk about the making of the film, and her thoughts on the duty of documentarians.

Here is the trailer for the documentary:
