Capturing the Flag Web Banner

The John Brademas Center of New York University and NYU Washington, DC hosted a free screening of the important new documentary, "Capturing the Flag."  

As the 2016 National Election unfolds around them, a diverse team of charismatic voter protection volunteers travel from New York City to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where they learn their skills at the polls - years in the making - are no match for the insidious game of modern-day voter suppression. How will they continue in the fight for democracy's most sacred promise to its citizens: the right to vote?

Director and Producer, Anne De Mare, Producer, Elizabeth Hemmerdinger, and Producer and Film Subject, Laverne Berry, led the discussion after the film.
