America's problems: here's a positive spin.
The movie Four Corners proposes win-wins.

In 2012, educator Talora Michal took a sabbatical from the classroom and teamed up with I am Spartacus Entertainment to collect win-win solutions to America's most polarized problems. While the actual interviews were conducted in six states--California, Oregon, Nevada, Louisiana, Florida, and New York--perspectives from every region of the country were captured.

In Four Corners, dozens of citizens of all ages from diverse backgrounds and political perspectives speak on camera to give their impressions of what most ails our nation, and share proposals for solutions to squabbling. Several speakers address the prejudices and attitudes that are at the root of those conflicts that pepper headlines; notions that are normally kept dormant in the era following the rise of political correctness in the 1990s are spoken about on camera with candor.

Among the speakers are clergy of all faiths who provide a context for understanding the ideology backing social debates, and do their best to offer guidance to heal a nation divided.

Welded together, the message--while sometimes hard to hear--is hopeful. Four Corners is an investment in each other--especially neighbors who are different from us that we may be inclined to tune out--with hope that the conversation will be a springboard for peace.
