Indie Memphis doc presentation

Indie Memphis is presenting a special screening of the Big Muddy Film Festival award-winner CONSIDERING DEMOCRACY: 8 THINGS TO ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVE at Malco’s Studio on the Square (2105 Court Avenue) on Monday, May 19 at 7 pm. Filmmaker Keya Lea Horiuchi will be in attendance to answer questions and lead the discussion. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Have you ever wondered about what the rest of the world thinks about the United States? More importantly, what is true about the things people say? CONSIDERING
DEMOCRACY seeks to stimulate discussion and move the American debate toward
finding solutions. Based on interviews and scenes from outside of the United States, each section of the film playfully explores the views with statistical comparisons. It looks at seemingly different topics while creating a tapestry of tantalizing information that becomes interwoven and interconnected, while providing concise information and a question to further the debate.

CONSIDERING DEMOCRACY brings refreshing points of view to the political
discussion, while bringing a new meaning to the term of independent filmmaking, the
filmmaker having traveled across 10 countries by herself, and produced, directed, shot,
and edited the film. The rest of the world is a source of intelligence that acts as a
beautiful, yet pragmatic reflection of political power in the United States.
