S1E9 - What Is Democracy?

Throughout the year, JBFC documentary series Global Watch: Crisis & Social Action works to untangle the stories behind the headlines, shed light in dark corners, and introduce us to the people working to make the world a better place. In Episode Nine, we dive into a conversation between filmmaker Astra Taylor and JBFC Programming Director Brian Ackerman, who discussed Taylor’s riveting—and highly relevant—What is Democracy? following a Global Watch screening in January 2019.

The Jacob Burns FilmCast is mixed, edited, and published by Mike Towndrow, and produced by Paige Grand Pré. Support for this podcast comes from the Jacob Burns Film Center, a nonprofit five-screen cinema and education center located in Pleasantville, NY.
