Electoral Dysfunction: Documentary Screening and Discussion With Filmmaker Bennett Singer

Date: 29  Oct 2015  (Thu)
Time: 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Location: MWT4, Meng Wah Complex, HKU

After discovering that the right to vote is missing from the U.S. Constitution, CBS News Correspondent and Daily Show veteran Mo Rocca sets out on a road trip to see how voting works—and doesn’t work—in America. He heads to Indiana, home to some of the nation’s strictest election laws, and meets one Republican and one Democrat who take him inside their efforts to get out every vote. As he progresses on his journey, Mo searches for the Electoral College; investigates the debate over Voter ID and voter fraud; critiques ballots with renowned designer Todd Oldham; and explores the case of a former felon who was sentenced to ten years in prison—for the crime of voting. He also examines reforms that would make our voting system fairer and more transparent. Electoral Dysfunction was produced, directed and written by David Deschamps, Leslie D. Farrell and Bennett Singer, whose collective credits include multiple Emmy, Peabody and duPont-Columbia Awards.
