Call It Democracy To Make Cable Broadcast Premiere Via Documentary Channel
Voting Rights Issues Central To 2012 Presidential Race
(New York, NY): Call it Democracy, the full length feature documentary Directed and Produced by Matt Kohn, will make its cable broadcast debut via The Documentary Channel, Nov. 3rd (8pm and 11pm EST); and Nov. 5th (4pm EST).
“Call it Democracy debates the integrity of Presidential Elections through the lens of the Electoral College,” states Kohn. “It blows the roof off the biggest scandal of election administration – how most of us are voting on machines owned by corporations with their own private agendas – at this very moment both presidential campaigns are ready to accuse the other of voter fraud. With voting integrity again at the center of this year’s Presidential Election, we are so pleased that this film’s message is more relevant than ever.”
In a time when questions of election fraud and voting integrity still populate the headlines, Call It Democracy explores the issues from the judicial, cultural and philosophical points of view, offering a non-partisan glimpse into the world of America’s backroom election politics, suggesting society needs to take strong action to protect voter’s rights. Featuring many people at the center of the voting rights debate including: Professor Alan Dershowitz, Senator Birch Bayh, Federal Judge Richard A. Posner, The Nation’s John Nichols, John Conyers (D-MI), Rush Holt (D-NJ), Dr. Mary Francis Berry and Demos’ Miles Rapoport.
The Documentary Channel, a 24-hour-per-day, 7-days-a-week television network dedicated exclusively to airing the works of independent documentary filmmakers, strives to explore the human experience through these passionate perspectives. It is available through both the Dish Network and Direct TV. Call It Democracy is distributed via 7 Art Releasing and was Produced by Dan Efram at Tractor Beam.
