REACT to FILM Screening and Q&A: Electoral Dysfunction

Directors: David Deschamps, Leslie D. Farrell and Bennett Singer (2012)
Starring Mo Rocca
87 minutes | Documentary | Not Rated

REACT to FILM and Southampton Arts Center are pleased to partner for a special screening and Q&A of ELECTORAL DYSFUNCTION. Described as “fascinating, fun, frightening [and] enlightening” by WBEZ Radio/NPR and as a film “that lives up to its title” by The New York Times, ELECTORAL DYSFUNCTION is the first documentary project to take an irreverent—but nonpartisan—look at voting in America. In the same way that An Inconvenient Truth revealed the need for immediate action on global warming—and as Bowling for Columbine exposed the roots of America’s gun culture—the film will help spark a national dialogue on the steps ordinary citizens can take to ensure that every vote counts. As former Secretary of State James A. Baker III and former President Jimmy Carter noted in a bipartisan report on election reform, “Americans are losing confidence in the fairness of elections … We believe the time for acting to improve our electoral system is now.”

Following a national broadcast on PBS and more than 500 campus and community screenings, ELECTORAL DYSFUNCTION has won numerous awards, including the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award, the ABA’s highest honor for media projects that foster public understanding of the law. The film is hosted by the Emmy- and Peabody-winning political humorist Mo Rocca, who takes a road trip to learn how voting works — and doesn’t work — in America.

A Q&A with the filmmakers will take place following the screening.

This film will be screened indoors. Seating is limited, advance reservations recommended.
