About the Project

Tired of waiting for someone else to save Democracy? A tight-knit group of friends travel to Cumberland County, North Carolina - named a “posterchild” for voter suppression - intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens. Through the intimate experiences of the film’s citizen volunteers we are inspired to vote, to help someone else to vote, and to get involved in the growing non-partisan efforts to protect our fragile democracy. With verité footage of Barack Obama and Reverend Dr. William Barber II, Capturing The Flag is a powerful call to arms for what we all can and need to do in the ongoing battle for voting rights.

Support for this project through donations and sponsorship funds our outreach work with the film with pro-democracy organizations across the country. Visit www.capturingtheflag.com for more information.
