On the Trail: Inside the 2020 Primaries

Produced by CNN Films, this documentary feature trails the exhilarating and exhausting lives of several female CNN political reporters as they cover the historic 2020 presidential campaign. Drawing from unprecedented access to the press corps as they sacrifice sleep and their sense of autonomy for the prestigious, all-consuming job of covering the Democratic primary elections, On the Trail reveals the extraordinary stories of the journalists behind this divisive and unusual campaign. Giving viewers a “backstage pass” through months of election nights, debates, campaign events, and more, the film dives into the challenges – and victories – these powerhouse reporters face as they juggle life back home with life on the road.
