What Is Democracy? Screening + Q&A

Copresented with The Joseph Stern Center for Social Responsibility

Dir. Astra Taylor (Canada, 2018, 107 min)

Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, What Is Democracy? reflects on a word we too often take for granted. Director Astra Taylor’s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens’ groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalism’s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Screening followed by Q+A with the director.
