Election Day: A Film About Real People Who Make Our Democracy Work [VIDEO]

An experiment in cinema verite filmmaking, Election Day was shot in a single day - November 2, 2004 - by over a dozen camera crews around the United States. The stars of this documentary are a lively and eclectic group of citizens from the Florida panhandle to the South Dakota plains - making the most of their right to vote. Election Day will be part of the Yearly Kos Convention screening series in Chicago next week. Check it out at YK in the screening room at 9:30 am on Thursday, August 2nd.
