"This is our America. And it isn't what we promised." For generations, the daily life of minority citizens has been in a state of crisis. Adapted from the EPIX docu-series and guided by such high-profile correspondents as Norman Lear, Jesse Williams, Common, and Zack Galifianakis, The Cycle examines the pervasive and longstanding structures of racial discrimination in America, reinforced by a political system that disenfranchises poor people and people of color. To their outrage and incredulity, they witness the damages of systemic inequality in housing, education, criminal justice, and politics, all the while highlighting individuals who've dedicated themselves to battling these issues.
The Cycle intones that we are living in a pivotal moment — one in which we must decide how to combat corrupted systems that have long plagued our nation. Provocative and illuminating, this documentary raises the voices of those who seek to stamp out the fires of segregation as it endures today. — Colton Cox
