As the 2020 vote approaches, Americans’ understanding of election laws and their intricacies gains greater importance.
Uncivil War: U.S. Elections Under Siege, a new documentary from the Bertelsmann Foundation, paints the picture of three different (and legal) ways to undermine an election in the United States: gerrymandering, voter suppression, and disinformation.
The film unravels a web of threats to American elections, separates truth from fiction, and exposes a hidden war against democracy itself. It also presents the remedy.
The Bertelsmann Foundation and The League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area will sponsor the Charleston premiere of the film Monday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the Terrace Theater in James Island.
Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with special guests Anthony Silberfeld from the Bertelsmann Foundation, Brian Hicks from The Post and Courier, and Barbara Zia and Shayna Howell from the League of Women Voters.
There will also be an audience Q&A session.
Admission is free, but registration is required. RSVP here.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the film begins at 6:30 p.m.
