Uncounted October 23, 2008Posted by Andreas in Uncategorized.
Another documentary screening by While You Were Sleeping:
Uncounted, a spine-chilling, feature-length film by Emmy award-winning director David Earnhardt about how Americans were cheated during the 2004 and 2006 elections will be shown at the Labia on Orange cinema in Cape Town on Sunday 2 November at 6.15pm, on Monday 3 November at 8:15pm and on Tuesday 4 November at 8:15pm.
On the eve of the 2008 US presidential elections, Uncounted is a wakeup call for everyone who has unconditional faith in election procedures in the world’s most “advanced” democracy. This controversial new documentary shows how election fraud changed the outcome of the 2004 election, led to even greater fraud in 2006 and how it now looms as an unbridled threat to the outcome of the 2008 election.
Uncounted examines in factual, logical, and yet startling terms how easy it is to change election outcomes and undermine election integrity. Noted computer programmers, statisticians, journalists, and experienced election officials provide the irrefutable proof. Eyewitness accounts from whistleblowers are backed up by election experts in revealing how racist tactics, electronic voting machine security breaches, vote count manipulation, and illegal behaviour by a major voting machine manufacturer all threaten the very core of US democracy – the vote.
Looking towards our own national and provincial elections next year, Uncounted is of particular interest and relevance to South Africans. Don’t miss it!
