Election Day in Durham

Just noticed that Katy Chevigny’s Election Day will be screening at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies on Monday, June 16 at 7 PM.  I just watched Election Day, which follows around a dozen U.S. voters, poll workers, and poll monitors, over the course of several hours on Election Day 2004.  I’m working on a blog review now, but I’ll go ahead and mention now that it’s an impressive film, especially in Chevigny’s ability to concisely tell so many stories about the ways in wich elections are conducted here in the U.S.  Chevigny will be present at the screening, and there will be a Q&A afterwards.

If you miss Election Day in Durham, it will be airing, I believe on July 1, on PBS’s P.O.V.   More later.
