CALL IT DEMOCRACY (2005, 86 minutes) Directed by Matthew Kohn CALL IT DEMOCRACY is a fresh perspective on voting rights, election reform and the unresolved electronic voting controversies threatening to undermine confidence in the democratic system of the USA -- the reality of what it means to vote in the U.S. today - Variety
THE BOULDER DISPATCH
Colorado was a swing state in the 2004 election. After the 2004 election was over, and Colorado was decided for Bush, over 200,000 votes remained uncounted in Boulder County. This short film examines what happened next.
The reporting on display here is top notch, and its anger is tempered with intelligent journalism that aims for fairness. It's a solid work all around, and a welcome addition to the current political documentary explosion. - David Cornelius, Efilmcritic A balanced and resourceful film that peers into America's voting system and finds there are more problems than meet the eye. - Buzzflash

It is still used in schools across the United States. More than 200,000 people have viewed and discussed Call it Democracy.
