’The Trust Crisis’ explores the role of Trust in politics and how polarization is affecting our relationship to government and power. It is a powerful and important film that won the Spotlight Award at the ‘A Show for a Change’ Festival in California, was screened at the ESRC Social Sciences Festival in Southampton and was promoted on the podcast, ‘Rewriting Hollywood’.
The judges called it “An important and timely film” which shines a light on 3 key countries; The US where trust has fallen fast; Denmark, which has the highest levels of political and social trust in the world; and The UK, where trust is falling but political institutions have been stable. Along the way we meet incredible characters, and our findings were both interesting and surprising.
