Democracy Through the Looking Glass
Kevin Bowe | 2017 | VS | 75'
What starts out as a fun story about a citizen who embeds himself with the media covering the 2016 presidential campaigns, turns into an eye-opening journey; where shiny objects hypnotize, truthiness empowers and paranoia runs rampant. Ultimately, the film examines the junction between media, politics and technology in the Post-Truth Era. This 40,000 foot story is told from the trenches of press conferences, voter experiences and the campaign trail, with insights from veteran CBS journalist Bob Schieffer, Boston Globe Editor Brian McGrory, Harvard University's Nicco Mele, Larry Lessig and others.

BURKINABÈ RISING: the art of resistance in Burkina Faso
Iara Lee | 2017 | Burkina Faso | 72'A small landlocked country in West Africa, Burkina Faso is home to a vibrant community of artists, musicians, engaged citizens who carry on the revolutionary spirit of Thomas Sankara, killed in a coup d'état led by his best friend and advisor Blaise Compaoré, who then ruled the country as an autocrat for 27 years, til a massive popular insurrection led to his removal. Today, the spirit of resistance and political change is mightier than ever and it permeates every aspect of the Burkinabè life. It is an inspiration, not only to Africa, but also to the rest of the world.
