Numa brilhante curta, um professor levado ao limite por uma turma complicada arranja uma forma muito prática de explicar à turma o que é a democracia representativa.
“There’s this fantastic improv show on WNYC called “The Truth”. Headed up by a chap named Jonathan Mitchell, these guys generate a story, usually dark and ironic, and then workshop the hell out of it with their ridiculously talented cast, then edit it down into something succinct and powerful. All of their pieces are worth a listen, but this one, called “That’s Democracy”, I knew at once would make a tremendous short film. Jon Bowden and I contacted TheTruth in New York, and managed to strong-arm them into letting us to turn their podcast into a film. And so here it is… This screen adadaptation, directed by myself and Jon Bowden, is taken from a podcast story of the same name on a WNYC show called, The Truth. The original piece can be found here.”
