SLAY THE DRAGON

Gerrymandering has been a popular topic recently, and for good reason. Beyond the blatant political interests fueling the practice, gerrymandering has led to an erosion of democracy, a disregard for the voter, and without it various events in the past years would not have been pulled off. Slay the Dragon draws direct connections between this practice and the Flint water crisis, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s removal of collective bargaining for public employees, bathroom bills, racism, and voter ID laws.

Reviews:

The documentary is interesting and there really isn't much wrong with it. I think my biggest issue with it is how it will age. It's very much a movie that is only relevant now, which is why I question if it will hold up in any way. Honestly, it could be outdated in a year or two, but only time will tell. For right now, it's interesting and something I would recommend.
