Documentary film: Democracy Through the Looking Glass

A new documentary by Kevin Bowe, Democracy Through the Looking Glass dives deep into the rabbit hole of the 2016 New Hampshire primary to portray how polarized and hateful American politics has become in an era of fake news and lightning-fast social media. Following the 75-minute film, we’ll host a discussion featuring Bowe and Gilmanton resident/Boston University political scientist Virginia Sapiro asking how today’s citizens can engage in civil discourse and build harmony across party lines. Attendees are encouraged to bring an appetizer to share or, alternatively, a friend of whose politics differ from their own.
