GENRE: Documentary, Politics
Every decade, our major political parties gear up for a cartographic war that is kept far from the prying eyes of the public. The winner of this conflict gets to control Congress for the next ten years, and possibly more. There are battles in every state, but the loser will always be the average American voters who become more disenchanted with each meaningless election. It is the ultimate political weapon: the ability to directly determine the outcomes of elections. What’s worse is that this practice, gerrymandering, is perfectly legal. For the first time, Gerrymandering exposes the most effective form of manipulating elections short of outright fraud. Why would politicians bother stuffing ballots when they can just draw districts?
