I Voted? showing at Warwick Showcase Cinemas
Tribeca Film Festival Documentary I Voted? (76 min)
Showcase Warwick, Cinemas - 1200 Quaker Ln, Warwick, RI, 02886
May 24th at 7:30pm
Presented by the Rhode Island Center for Freedom & Prosperity.
From executive producer Katie Couric, the non-partisan documentary I Voted? plays at the Warwick Showcase Cinemas on May 24th at 7:30pm. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, the film asks a fundamental question of our democracy – how do you know your vote counts? The answer is both surprising and disturbing.
First time filmmaker Jason Grant Smith starts the film with an exploration of a 2010 South Carolina voting irregularity. From there, the story unfolds into a six year in-depth exploration of America’s election integrity. As Katie Couric told The Hollywood Reporter before the film’s 2016 premiere, “For me, it's just really fun to see Jason go on this journey and do it in an entertaining way when he's dealing with some really critically important basic issues.”
Part of the film’s storyline ventures to Rhode Island with several Brown faculty interviews, including Pulitzer Prize winner Gordon Wood. The film also stops at the birthplace of General Nathanael Greene and pays homage to Warwick’s native son.
A Q&A follows the screening, featuring the filmmaker and Rob Rock, Rhode Island’s Director of Elections.
