description
Many have heard of the alleged voting irregularities that occurred during the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Until now, these incidents have gone under-reported and are commonly written-off as insignificant rumors or unintentional mishaps resulting from an overburdened election system.

American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter disenfranchisement witnessed in both elections while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in investigating these election debacles but also found herself in the middle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Others call her a conspiracy theorist. American Blackout gains unprecedented access to one of the most controversial and outspoken politicians in America and examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence political dissent. The film features interviews with: U.S. Congressional Representatives, John Lewis, Cynthia McKinney, John Conyers, Bernie Sanders, and Stephanie Tubbs-Jones; former U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner & Dean of UC Berkeley's School of Law, Christopher Edley; BBC journalist Greg Palast; and, Van Jones, Executive Director of the Ella Baker Center.

OUR COMMENTS
Cynthia McKinney has been a vocal opponent of the war in Iraq from before the sentiment was popular. This made her a target for the media as well as for the well-oiled Republican Machine. The film illustrates just how successful the media can be in destroying the reputation of a popular candidate.

My only complaint is that though this film talks about much of the voter fraud in 2000 and 2004 and the drive to keep America away from the polls, it does not detail the electronic voting fraud of 2004. Nevertheless, this is a well made film and explains the situation of a courageous women who spoke up on an issue that was being ignored.
