United States History in Streaming Documentary Films: End of the 20th Century - Present

End of the 20th Century - Present

Becoming Free
"America continues to make tremendous strides through the prosperity of the 1980s, 1990s, and into the new millennium. The nation's mettle is severely tested by the tragedy of September 11, 2001, but the people of the United States rally together. New York City comes to stand as a symbol of American diversity.?"

Loose Change 9/11
"September 11th, 2001. An event and a day many will never forget. However nearly 15 years on, for many the attack on New York's twin towers did not occur in their lifetime, but have become just a footnote in a new history book. Loose Change challenges the official record, proposing a far more disturbing truth. Combining the four existing editions and with new unseen footage, this updated version of the film will challenge your perceptions: whether you believe it or not, you are unlikely to ever see a more thought-provoking film."

President Trump
"Examine the key moments that shaped President-elect Donald Trump. Interviews with advisors, business associates and biographers reveal how Trump transformed himself from real estate developer to entertainer to president."

Right Turn

The Road to War: American Decision-Making During the Gulf Crisis
"This unprecedented historical retrospective provides an inside look at how the U.S. responded to the Gulf crisis, how America’s leaders evaluated data and options, how decisions were made and policies implemented, and how the crisis was managed on a day-to-day basis—in short, the steps that led to war and thence to the cease-fire. The participants include James Baker, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and most of the other members of President Bush’s 'war cabinet' as well as the sub-cabinet officials who played central roles in the political, diplomatic, and military aspects of the war. We know of no comparable instance in which so many top-level officials have come together to discuss openly an event of such historic proportions. What this program presents is the firsthand recollections, very shortly after the events took place, of the decision-makers responsible for taking the U.S. into and out of war."

World of Uncertainty
"Follow this video journey into the 21st century. American political leaders faced several key issues in the 1990s and 2000s which defied easy solutions. Trade and technology made the world more interdependent as new conflicts flared up around the world."
