"AMERICAN BLACKOUT" (USA/2006)


Ein stilistisch gesehen sehr kämpferischer Dokumentarfilm, der den fesselnden Werdegang der US-Kongressabgeordneten Cynthia McKinney (Demokratin aus Georgia) und die Unterdrückung der schwarzen Wählerstimmen historisch und während der jüngsten Präsidentenwahlen in Florida und Ohio eingehend beleuchtet. Die neueste Produktion aus dem Hause der News-Community Guerrilla News Network gewann beim Sundance Festival 2006 einen Special Award der Jury und beein- druckt sowohl durch Stil als auch durch den brisanten Inhalt: “Most people have heard of the voting irregularities that marred the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Some even know of the resulting challenges to the electoral votes by African-American congressional representatives. However, because the mainstream media shies away from reporting cases of imperiled democracy the public is left to believe these stories are at worst insignificant rumors or at best one-off incidents that result from an overburdened election system. American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of disenfranchisement witnessed from 2000 to 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in investigating these election debacles but also found herself in the middle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Others call her a conspiracy theorist and a 'looney.' American Blackout gains unprecedented access to one of the most controversial and dangerous politicians in America and examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence political dissent.” Mit besonderem Dank an Ian Inaba und gnn.tv! American Blackout (USA/2006) Buch/Regie: Ian Inaba; 92min; eng. OV.
