“The most important political film of the year, and it may prove to be one of the key political films of the decade.” (Variety)
This incisive and stirring documentary focuses on one of the greatest threats to American democracy: gerrymandering. The practice of redrawing electoral maps to serve the party in power has been taken to unprecedented extremes in today’s hyperpartisan political environment. After the 2008 election, a well-funded partisan initiative poured money into state legislative races in key swing states to gain control of their redistricting processes and used high-tech analytics to dramatically skew voting maps based on demographic data. The result is one of the greatest electoral manipulations in U.S. history. Outraged, but optimistic, SLAY THE DRAGON shines a light on this timely issue, and follows a handful of citizens’ groups as they battle an entrenched political establishment to fix a broken system.
