Democracy Through The Looking Glass

Democracy Through The Looking Glass

Filmed during the 2016 New Hampshire Primary, including several scenes in Portsmouth.  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.

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. Q&A with the Filmmaker to follow both screenings.
