“UnRepresented” – Documentary Screening & Filmmaker Q&A

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Virtual Event

UnRepresented is an award-winning documentary that uncovers the mechanisms that drive the cycle of corruption in Congress—giving political insiders enormous, unchecked power. The film explores how special interests bankroll political campaigns and relentlessly lobby to rig the system in their favor, all while following the letter of the law. Dole Institute audience members can take part in an exclusive viewing of the documentary before its debut on PBS. During a follow-up event, a panel of experts will discuss the problems highlighted in the documentary, and the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.

The panel features the panel will feature UnRepresented filmmaker Andrew Rodney, businessman and leading voice of the Independent Movement Greg Orman, and Mary Banwart, an expert in political campaign communication at the Department of Communications at KU. The live online discussion will highlight influences in campaigns and politics, current reform efforts, and filmmaker insights on the making of the film.
