The Civil War director doesn't see an American story in his new film – but it's set in the US for good reason

While former Machina and Annihilation writer-director Alex Garland's new film focuses on a group of journalists covering a second civil war in the United States, he doesn't see the film as quintessentially American.

“I don’t exactly see it as an American story,” he tells GamesRadar+ and Inside Total Film. “There are two main elements in the film. One is about journalism and the other is about polarized politics and populism — extremism, essentially — and neither of those things are in any way limited to America.”
