Uncivil War

U.S. Elections Under Siege

Americans are losing faith in democracy. In the lead-up to the 2020 election, our documentary Uncivil War explores three factors eroding democracy in the United States: gerrymandering, voter suppression, and disinformation. The film unravels a web of threats to American elections, separates truth from fiction, and exposes a hidden war against democracy itself.

To accompany this documentary, we have created an education guide for use in secondary schools and university courses. Educators can use this to guide discussion and spark debate after a screening of the film.
