Zack Galifianakis in Democracy for Sale

Democracy For Sale 

When: Sun., April 9, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: Free

A part of the larger docu-series America Divided, Democracy for Sale traces the journey of comedian and North Carolina native son Zach Galifianakis through our state's fraught political landscape. Galifianakis, self-described as "the guy with the beard from that movie," plays the naïf to link the HB 2 brouhaha and environmental degradation to money in politics, gerrymandering, and voter suppression. He makes a convincing case that the game is rigged and the state is suffering for it. Along the way he meets white NAACP members in Appalachia, a voting-rights journalist, Republican strategists who believe money is speech, and the incandescent Reverend Barber, head of North Carolina's NAACP and the Moral Movement. "North Carolina is the place I care about," Galifianakis concludes, "but, really, we all live in our own North Carolina." Presented by youth organizers at the Chapel of the Cross, the screening will be followed by a talk-back facilitated by Durham City Councilman Charlie Reece. —Samuel Feldblum
