Joe Biden will take office at a moment of profound national crisis in a deeply divided country: In addition to the chaos of the Capitol attack and the undermining of the election by President Trump, approximately 400,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus, and a reckoning over racism in the wake of George Floyd’s killing is ongoing.
How will Biden navigate the substantial challenges that lie ahead? The documentary “President Biden” offers answers. In the film, those who know Biden best describe the searing moments that shaped the President-elect and what those challenges reveal about how he may govern a nation confronting multiple crises.
The documentary is from veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk, who with his team has made five installments of FRONTLINE’s election-year series The Choice and nearly 20 documentaries about the Trump and Obama eras.
