The crowd-funded Kickstarter campaign to support our coming documentary about election reform in the U.S. titled, “The Design of a Broken System” is on!!!
The time has come for Democracy Chronicles to close out our first fundraising effort ever. We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to support our coming documentary “The Design of a Broken System” and we need all the help we can get from our friends, family, readers, and the community at large to successfully reach out target. The documentary is being filmed by director and longtime Democracy Chronicles contributor John Amaruso and coupled with his unique style of filming, this documentary will help release the pent up frustration of millions of Americans whose most basic demand of their government is a fair democracy.
Production of the documentary has already begun and some really interesting footage is already in our hands that has the making of an amazing film. Recently, our film team was lucky enough to be able to be film the second anniversary celebrations of Occupy Wall Street at Zucotti Park where the protest movement was first launched by a small team of dedicated citizens. We filmed some of the marching, protesting, and as much of the imaginative sloganeering and protest signs that we could. We also have amazing film of interviews with protesters and activists including a song about money in elections from a very nice guitar playing protester!
On top of this, we have interviewed some really interesting players in the drama that is national election reform. Recently we filmed a conversation with election reform advocate Ester Fuchs who is Professor of Public Affairs and Political Science and Director of the Urban and Social Policy Program at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. She also served as Special Advisor to the Mayor for Governance and Strategic Planning under New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg from 2001 to 2005.
Also, we have a few politicians who have signed up for interviews including Fred W. Thiele, Jr. who represents District 2 in the New York State Assembly, who completed a fascinating interview with our film team only recently. The 2nd Assembly District includes East Hampton, Southampton and the southeastern section of Brookhaven.
We also plan to film interviews with key people involved in the election reform community as well as everyday people who are fed up with the current system of corruption in government. Only by working together as a community can we exact the change we want. But working together means reaching across barriers and finding new ways to spread the message of democracy in America. We are hoping to get support from people like you who are interested in joining this fight.
Please donate today to our Kickstarter Campaign and support this documentary about election reform.
