This mini-documentary puts a fun and inventive spotlight on the life and times of the first president of the United States. #GeorgeWashington guides viewers through many unique aspects of Washington's life in a relatable, social media-inspired manner. This piece makes the founding father seem like a more relatable person, by helping the audience understand his inner thoughts. Visual diagrams and famous paintings create an immersive experience for viewers. The historians and experts don't shy away from ascensive subjects, such as slavery.
