'Electoral Dysfunction' followed by Q&A with co-director Bennett Singer and Surprise Guests
Electoral Dysfunction
Leslie D. Farrell, Bennett Singer, David Deschamps, 2012, 90 min
While other films have examined narrow aspects of our electoral system, Electoral Dysfunction is the first documentary project to take an irreverentbut nonpartisanlook at voting in America. Electoral Dysfunction opens as host Mo Rocca makes a startling discovery: The right to vote is absent from the U.S. Constitution. Mo then embarks on a quest to find out why the Founding Fathers deliberately left the right to vote out of the Constitutionand to learn why the greatest democracy on earth has a dysfunctional voting system.

Q&A with co-director Bennett Singer. More surprise guests to be announced.

Bennett Singer is an award-winning New York-based filmmaker/writer with 20 years of experience. His feature Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin premiered at Sundance, was broadcast nationally on PBS, and is currently airing on Logo/MTV. The film won more than 25 international awards, including the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary and eight Best Documentary prizes. Described as "powerful and startling" (The Advocate), "poignant" (Time), and "brilliant" (Wall Street Journal), the film illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist and mentor to Martin Luther King Jr. who dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.
