at University City Regional Library

Join The Independent Picture House and University City Regional Library for a screening of the documentary Democracy for Sale.

North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. Zach Galifianakis, the comic star of “The Hangover” movies, travels back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has become a bellwether for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy. Galifianakis investigates allegations that the current state government was put in power by moneyed interests and has thus carried out a program that only benefits its backers: cuts to education, healthcare spending and environmental protection; lowering of taxes for the wealthy and corporations; and the passage of laws designed to roll back access to the ballot.

Indie on Wheels will include a screening of the documentary followed by a group discussion.  This is a free community event.

This program is sponsored by Culture Blocks— a community partnership between ASC, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to bring arts and cultural experiences closer to where  residents live. Culture Blocks is funded by Mecklenburg County.

Address: 301 E W.T. Harris Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28262
Time: 6pm – 7:45pm
