Fasten your seatbelts as you are thrown directly into a fractured America of the near future. A team of journalists put themselves in danger in search of the ultimate story. No time is wasted explaining what happened before. This film is all about the here and now, where every choice has consequences.

Genre: action, adventure, thriller
Language: English, subtitles: Dutch

From filmmaker Alex Garland comes a journey across a dystopian future America, following a team of journalists as they race against time to reach Washington DC before rebel factions descend upon the White House. 

Follow this group of courageous journalists as they tell - probably - the biggest story of their lives: the inevitable end of the United States as we know it. Civil War not only shows the physical conflicts on screen, but also brings to light the deeper, underlying issues that have led to the disruption of the once proud country.

An intriguing action film about an erupted civil war with the entire country on the verge of total collapse and in chaos.

This film is recommended by the SG Student Film Committee because: "It is an interesting examination of the many ways people deal with atrocities. By choosing to follow a team of war journalists, Garland brings viewers closer to this expertly constructed idea of what a future American civil war might look like.”

“Civil War enflames our discomfort by bringing the conflict to our own backyard. The Playlist

“Rarely have I seen a movie that made me so acutely uncomfortable or watched an actor’s face that, like Dunst’s, expressed a nation’s soul-sickness so vividly that it felt like an X-ray.” The New York Times

“Once you understand that Civil War isn’t about what you think, you can appreciate it for what it actually is: a searing meditation on what happens when political orders collapse and violence takes on a sinister logic of its own.” Vox
