It’s Time We Talked
Bluestockings (172 Allen St., Manhattan)
“It’s Time We Talked” is a wry and intense road trip across direct democracy’s history and potential in America. It probes archival materials, the stories of ballot activists of all stripes, our political assumptions, and everyday people’s ideas for laws to make a case for true citizenship. Its research sparked the organization lowercase d to initiate an exciting ballot campaign to create modern day citizen lawmaking in NYC, about which there will be a post-screening discussion with filmmaker Olaf Bertram-Nothnagel.
