After the 2008 election, a secretive, well-funded partisan initiative poured money into state legislative races in key swing states to gain control of their redistricting processes and used high-tech analytics to dramatically skew voting maps based on demographic data.  The result is one of the greatest electoral manipulations in U.S. history, one that poses a fundamental threat to our democracy and exacerbates the already polarized atmosphere in Congress and state houses across the country. 

"Slay the Dragon" Gerrymandering Documentary

"SLAY THE DRAGON is the most important political film of the year, and it may prove to be one of the key political films of the decade. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“It’s a movie about gerrymandering, and it doesn’t matter how unappealing the word sounds or how nerdy it seems, it’s THE most important thing to watch right now on any screen.” – Helen Highly, Indiewood

"If anything, this film should be a lesson that the will of the people will eventually prevail, even if all seems lost. – Matt Cohen, Washington City Paper
