        Faith and Rebellion | Finding Your Roots

        This video segment from the PBS series Finding Your Roots features Maggie Gyllenhaal as she learns more about her father's family's religion, Swedenborgianism. A background of the religion is provided and Maggie discusses her father's rejection of the religion. Ultimately, his rejection of Swedenborgianism related to the cultural shift of the 1950s and 1960s when young people rebelled against traditions and the "American" identity was truly founded.
