This film addresses the universal problems about media and politics that frustrate people from all ideological viewpoints. “Democracy Through the Looking Glass” covers the national conversation around the 2016 presidential election, rather than focusing on the daily sound bites or sniping between campaigns.
The documentary explores the evolution of traditional media models and their coverage of the run-up to the election. It also covers the very profound impact technology had in uniting and amplifying previously silent segments of society that dominated political discourse during the campaign. Includes interviews of Bob Schieffer, Harvard’s Larry Lessig and Nicco Mele, Boston Globe Editor Brian McGrory, NPR/Atlantic commentary Jack Beatty, Virginia Sapiro and more.
