America at a Crossroads is a major public television event of twenty documentaries that premiered on PBS in April 2007 and concluded in 2009.
This series explores the challenges confronting the post-9/11 world — including the war on terrorism; the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan; the experience of American troops serving abroad; the struggle for balance within the Muslim world; and global perspectives on America’s role overseas.
Films premiered throughout 2007, 2008 and 2009. These films covered topics of an Army reserve unit deployment in Afghanistan; anti-American sentiments in Europe; America’s role in global stability; pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli activists clashing on U.S. campuses; radical Islam in U.S. prisons; Muslim-American comedians breaking down stereotypes; the trial of Saddam Hussein; Arab musicians exploring how the geo-political climate has influenced their art; and the unfolding drama in a small-town American mosque.
