Hamilton’s America is a documentary film that brings history to life through the lens of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s cultural phenomenon, Hamilton. The story of Alexander Hamilton – a poor immigrant who became one of America’s most vital architects – has largely been forgotten by history… until now.  The revolutionary musical, Hamilton, is taking the world by storm, with its diverse young cast claiming America’s history as their own.  Hamilton’s America delves even deeper into that history as it charts the creation of the show – combining footage of the musical, trips to historic locations, and interviews with artists, experts, and Presidents.
