Your outrage is waiting...
Whatever you think you know about our election systems or Congresswoman
Cynthia McKinney, this film will make you further question why the news
media fails to accurately inform the public. Directed by GNN's Ian
Inaba, creator of Eminem's "Mosh" music video, American Blackout
critically examines the contemporary tactics used to control our
democratic process and silence voices of political dissent.
Many have hear of the alleged voting irregularities that
occurred during the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Until now,
these incidents have gone under-reported and are commonly written off
as insignificant rumors or unintentional mishaps resulting from an
overburdened election system.
Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter
disenfranchisement from Florida 2000 to Ohio 2004 while following the
story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. McKinney not only took
an active role investigating these election debacles, but found herself
in the middle of her own after publicly questioning the Bush
Administration about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Featuring: Journalists Greg Palast, Bob Fitrakis and
Congressional members John Conyers, John Lewis, Stephanie Tubbs-Jones
and Bernie Sanders.
