what

something about bubbles is an original political satire comedy series, following two liberal filmmakers as they attempt to make the bubble project, a documentary exploring the issues that divide our country.

while seeking a better understanding of how people from different parts of the country view racial discrimination, police violence, gun laws, immigration, women's rights and health care, what is discovered is that we are all flawed and that if you can’t laugh at yourself you will never even begin to see the other side.

why

we are a nation divided. anger, hostility, and frustration are at dangerous levels and so is the need to blame.

if we are going to heal as a nation, we need to set aside our egos and have the courage to look inward, to look at our own principles and assumptions as well as our flaws. the first step as individuals and as a country, is to, at the very least, be open to the possibility of understanding the other side of the conversation.

bubbles is an invitation to commonality, empathy and respect. the series, consisting of ten episodes, sets out to challenge the perceptions of the left and the right by satirizing both sides of the equation at the same time.
