present a riveting and, at the same time, an informational evening!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION about the evening:
These screenings present a rare opportunity to see Clint Curtis and his testimony during a hearing held by members of the U.S. Congress in the context of a larger perspective than is usually provided. Footage from that hearing and a first person interview with Clint are important dimensions of Fadiman’s film. Other interviewees in STEALING AMERICA include poll workers, computer experts, journalists, politicians, voters of all ages and others concerned about reports that certain communities may have been targeted for intimidation. The film introduces a spectrum of issues, including discrepancies between exit polls and final official tallies, the silence of the media following the election and the impact of technological glitches – for example more votes than voters, and vote flipping from one candidate to another. The film documents stories such as those of inner city voters who experienced waiting hours in line, along with the apparent unequal distribution of voting machines. A key piece in the story is Clint’s experience in being asked to “rig the vote”. Throughout, we underscore that election reform is not a partisan issue. It is the responsibility of both Democrats and Republicans to work with each other to address these issues. Various solutions to real problems are integrated into the film.
Our goal is to be provocative, but not confrontational. We want to engage viewers who may be uncomfortable addressing the realities of the election system. Our goal is to open people’s minds to the irregularities in the technology and open their hearts to the devastating impact of disenfranchising voters. The final question that the film poses is: How can we create an election system in which voters have confidence, and in which they can trust that their vote is being counted fairly?
