Don’t Miss Your Chance to Catch NFB’s Searing Documentary: ‘What Is Democracy?’

Submitted by The Tyee, 5 Dec 2018

Featuring a diverse cast — including celebrated philosophers, trauma surgeons, factory workers, refugees, and politicians — What Is Democracy? connects past and present, emotion and the intellect, the personal and the political, to provoke and inspire. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means.
