Capturing the Flag (Friday)

Description

What exactly happened on November 8, 2016? Turning its focus away from politics and towards the election process itself, Capturing the Flag tells the deeply personal story of four friends who travel to Cumberland County, NC - named “poster child” for voter suppression - intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens. Through the intimate experiences of the film’s volunteers we are inspired to vote, to help someone else vote, and to get personally involved in protecting our endangered civic life. A close-up examination of American democracy at its most vulnerable point – the ballot box - and a meditation on the essential power of the citizen in the American experiment.
Paired with the Short Film: He's Still Fast
