BELLY OF THE BEAST
Democracy is facing some significant challenges right now. Filmmakers are stepping into the political fray and utilizing film as a vital resource for information, a catalyst for change, and a call to action for deeper engagement in the democratic process. This roundtable discussion will feature the filmmakers and subjects of Festival films that address both the tools and the threats to democracy including voter suppression, protest movements, and the spread of misinformation.
In the spirit of civic engagement, the discussion will be streamed live to allow for audience Q&A participation.
