Capturing The Flag

a feature documentary film by Anne de Mare
produced by Providence Productions and Election Protection LLC

A tight-knit group of friends travel to Cumberland County, North Carolina - named 2016 “posterchild” for voter suppression - intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens. What they find at the polls serves as both a warning and a call to action for anyone interested in protecting the “One Person, One Vote” fundamental of our democracy.
