Arts Engine releases 10th anniversary DVD set

<span style="font-size: 10pt;font-family: "Bookman Old Style&quot&quot&quot&quot">Just in time for Election Day, Arts Engine Inc. releases the documentary Election Day and nine other DVDs as part of its Ten Year Anniversary Collection boxed set. Arts Engine Inc. produces socially conscious documentaries and advocates such projects as MediaRights.org, an &#147;on-line commons&#148; for nonfiction films on social issues.

<span style="font-size: 10pt;font-family: "Bookman Old Style&quot&quot&quot&quot">Directed by Arts Engine co-founder Katy Chevigny, Election Day (three out of five stars) offers a sprawling look at an Americans as they cast their ballots on Nov. 2, 2004. According to the closing credits, documentary crews chronicled the voting process in 14 different cities across the United States, three of which didn’t make the final cut (although some appear on the DVD’s deleted scenes). Chevigny presents a diverse cross-section of participants, including first-time voters, pollsters, volunteers and an Australian international election observer. Candidates actually running for office seldom make the stage, however, as Election Day focuses on the "troops on the ground," and finds first-hand examples of the system breaking down.
