Cinemocracy Rocks! at Red Rocks: a review

Cinemocracy Rocks! Monday, August 25, 2008 Red Rocks Amphiteatre

Better than: Rocking in the free world.

Near the end of Alan Dominguez’s film, Cinema+(Dem)ocracy, a guy said, “Voting is like peeing the ocean. It doesn’t make much difference, but you really feel good having done it.” Of all the people interviewed in the top ten Cinemocracy films shown Monday night, that guy’s quote was the most memorable. And while one vote may not seem like it makes a difference, as someone else said in another film, if we couldn’t vote we wouldn’t have a democracy.
