ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY

Gerrymandering, the process of manipulating the boundaries of electoral districts to favor one party, offers our country’s politicians an easy way to sway elections. This documentary follows two cases of everyday people fighting against the system. Katie Fahey, a young Mischigander, organizes a grassroots campaign to get a measure on the state’s ballot that would require an independent group – not the legislature – to draw district lines. In Wisconsin, an activist group challenges the state’s redistricting in a case that goes all the way to the Supreme Court.
