Somewhere along the line, politics replaced sex as the one thing we can’t discuss in mixed company. Bring It to the Table breaks that taboo. When Julie Winokur’s 17-year old son called her the most politically intolerant person she had ever met, she knew she had to prove him wrong. In this humorous, thought-provoking film, Winokur hits the road with a small star-spangled table, traveling across America on a mission to understand the roots of personal politics and bridge the partisan divide. Bring It is sparkling conversations across the country, empowering people to take an active role in breaking down hyper-partisanship at the ground level, citizen-to-citizen.
