film by Richard Ray Pérez and Joan Sekler
The 2000 Presidential Election
is the riveting story about the battle for
the Presidency in Florida and the undermining of democracy in America. Filmmakers
Richard Ray Pérez and Joan Sekler examine modern America's most controversial
political contest: the election of George W. Bush. What emerges is a disturbing
picture of an election marred by suspicious irregularities, electoral injustices,
and sinister voter purges in a state governed by the winning candidate's brother.
George W. Bush stole the presidency of the United States… and got away with it.
" …the movie highlights those on the front lines —from the African-Americans who
were turned away from the polling booths for assorted reasons. In one memorable
scene the filmmakers freeze-frame a 'protest' against the ballot recount, identifying
participants as staff members of Republican elected officials." --Elaine
