Virtual Theater: Slay the Dragon Part of the Virtual Theater
We miss seeing you at the movies! While the John & Nancy Hughes Theater is closed for the time being, we thought we would team up with Magnolia Pictures to bring you the next best thing–virtual theater!
ABOUT THE FILM:
Directed with the full force of an investigation by Barak Goodman and Chris Durrance, SLAY THE DRAGON shows how gerrymandering has become an immensely powerful weapon of partisan advantage, creating an unresponsive and unaccountable government. But ahead of the 2020 elections and a new round of redistricting, voters are fighting back. With exclusive access to influential, citizen-led activist groups, as well as the legal team that brought the most important voting rights case in a generation to the Supreme Court, SLAY THE DRAGON chronicles the civic grit that is turning the tide in the battle for the legitimacy of U.S. democracy.
“SLAY THE DRAGON is the most important political film of the year, and it may prove to be one of the key political films of the decade.”
— Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
“SLAY THE DRAGON is an excellent film that tells the story of how politicians used gerrymandering to cheat the American people out of equal representation for the past decade and how committed, organized citizens can fight back to restore fairness to our elections. With the next redistricting process set to take place in 2021, the message of SLAY THE DRAGON could not be more timely or more profound – we must end the era of politicians choosing their voters and give power back to the people, where it belongs. Our democracy is at stake.”
— Former Attorney General Eric Holder
