Documentary Screening: “One Vote” @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The Newseum presents a special screening of “One Vote.” This new documentary, filmed in five locations on Election Day 2016, captures the compelling stories of diverse American voters across the country.

Directed by Christine Woodhouse, the film follows a charismatic owner of the last tavern polling place in the country, an Alaskan family that travels miles to vote, an American investor in Omaha who devotes his day transporting voters, a gospel-singing physician who empowers disenfranchised citizens in rural South Carolina and a former felon in Kentucky voting for the first time since his arrest.

The film eschews partisan politics in favor of an honest portrayal of voters’ Election Day experiences and connects the struggles of generations past with voters’ dreams for the future.

Following the screening, Woodhouse and some of those featured in the film will take part in a panel discussion.
