Barak says she was inspired to make the movie after seeing so much division.

“Trump’s inauguration did not have the Hollywood A-listers who decorated Obama’s or (Clinton’s),” says Barak, who once supported Hillary Clinton. “For me, moving in between these two worlds, it was clear that Washington, D.C. and Hollywood were no longer mixing… they were at war.”

Actress Swanson asked, “Why is it not OK in Hollywood to be a conservative?”

“I feel that it’s time to set the example of let’s just all get along, ya know?” she said. “We can learn from each other. We don’t have to hate each other.”

When asked why she interviewed Trump’s opponents, Barak had a simple answer.

“Because we are all Americans! Because we are SO fortunate to be members of the biggest democracy in the world,” she says, noting that she’s interviewed dictators. “I appreciate the freedom of speech we have and the great melting pot America is. We should celebrate it every day!” She says her work is “not a superficial documentary like: ‘I love Trump’ or ‘I hate Trump.’ It discusses many topics we are facing these days: racism, socialism, the crucial point that we are at, the way the world views America.”
