Aired Thursday, July 3 at 10:00 p.m. on CPTV
Forget the pie charts, color-coded maps and hyperventilating pundits. Whatâ€™s the street-level experience of voters in todayâ€™s America? In a triumph of documentary storytelling, â€œElection Dayâ€ combines 12 stories â€” shot simultaneously on November 2, 2004, from dawn until long past midnight â€” into one. Factory workers, ex-felons, harried moms, Native-American activists and diligent poll watchers, from South Dakota to Florida, take the process of democracy into their own hands. The result: an entertaining, inspiring and sometimes unsettling tapestry of citizens determined on one fateful day to make their votes count. A co-production of Independent Television Service (ITVS). Director: Katy Chevigny. Producers: Maggie Bowman and Dallas Brennan Rexer. visit the website...
