Beyond Elections is now Online!

Beyond Elections is now Online!

The recently released documentary, Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas, is now up online to watch in English, Spanish or Portuguese.

The elections are over and US citizens have a new President. But as the world reacts to the failing financial system, individuals across the United States and the hemisphere are looking for answers. Beyond Elections may have some of the solutions.

What is Beyond Elections?

From Venezuela's Communal Councils, to Brazil's Participatory Budgeting; from Constitutional Assemblies to grassroots movements, recuperated factories to cooperatives across the hemisphere - this documentary is a journey which takes us across the Americas, to attempt to answer one of the most important questions of our time: What is Democracy?

Featuring interviews with: Eduardo Galeano, Amy Goodman, Emir Sader, Martha Harnecker, Ward Churchill, and Leonardo Avritzer as well as cooperative and community members, elected representatives, academics, and activists from Brazil, Canada, Venezuela, Argentina, United States, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, and more.

Beyond Elections is a full-length documentary, directed by Sílvia Leindecker & Michael Fox, produced by Estreito Meios, released in late 2008, and distributed by PM Press.
