Capturing The Flag

A tight-knit group of friends travel to Cumberland County, North Carolina—the 2016 “poster child” for voter suppression—intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens.  They station themselves at the polls answering questions and providing a reassuring presence so that our basic right is upheld.

CAPTURING THE FLAG provides an intimate, often unexpected, portrait of voter protection volunteers working the first Presidential election since the gutting of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

2018, USA, 76 minutes, Directed by Anne de Mare
