This sounds so familiar. The daughter of a Democratic U.S. representative directs a grassroots documentary about campaign season. But it's not Alexandra Pelosi this time. It's Karen Price, daughter of David, lifting the curtain on her film about the 2006 midterm election. HouseQuake is an award-winning documentary that follows then-Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee head Rahm Emanuel and seven candidates as they wrest the House away from the Republicans.

"There was no sentiments in this. It was pure winning," Emanuel says in the film. But Price promises that HouseQuake is more than a celebration of states turning blue. She laments one-sided stories, she says.

The free screening will be held in Room 05 of Duke's Sanford building. The film plays at 6 p.m. with a reception and Q-and-A with the director to follow. You can park for free at the Science Drive's visitor lot after 5 p.m. —Joe Schwartz
