GERRYMANDERING (2010) Directed by Jeff Reichert
In recent years America has seen a surge in "gerrymandering," the re-drawing of electoral boundaries to influence elections. Jeff Reichert's penetrating documentary explores how this tool disenfranchises communities and consolidates partisan power. Illuminating graphics and animation, along with testimony by numerous experts (notably California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger) round out this exposé of one of the most insidious forces in politics. HDcam, 81 min.
