From: David Earnhardt, "Uncounted" filmmaker
As the 2008 election approaches, I am excited to announce that UNCOUNTED: The New Math of American Elections will begin its national tour with two theatrical screenings in Sacramento on January 15, and then in Oakland on January 17. Those screenings will be followed by theatrical screenings in Minneapolis on January 30 and Denver on January 31.
The Sacramento Film & Music Festival honored our film with an Official Gold Circle Screening - and will present UNCOUNTED as part of its off-season screening series at the historic Crest Theatre. We also just learned that UNCOUNTED has been selected for the prestigious Durango Film Festival in Colorado, where we will have two screenings on February 28 & 29.
I will be appearing at all of these screenings to introduce the film and to participate in post-film discussions. Brad Friedman of BradBlog will join me for the screenings in Sacramento and Oakland. Brad has been a huge supporter of our efforts to reach as many people as possible with our film.
After the first leg of our national tour in January, we will return to Nashville for an encore engagement at the historic Belcourt Theatre in Nashville with two screenings on February 4 - the night before Super Tuesday, when 24 states hold their presidential primaries. Our theatrical premiere in Nashville last November attracted a sellout crowd, with many turned away at the door.
People are continuing to order DVD copies of UNCOUNTED at a brisk rate - representing 40 states and 14 countries - all in two short months since its release. If you haven't ordered your own copy, you can do so here.
I can't think of a better time to begin our national tour of UNCOUNTED, as the vast majority of Americans cast their votes in the 2008 presidential primaries during the next few weeks. The disenfranchisement of voters has only intensified in recent elections making 2008 a critical year for us all to be certain that every vote is accurately counted. We hope our film will help bring a heightened focus and awareness to this threat to the very core of our democracy - perhaps in time to make a difference for the 2008 election.
