People are unhappy with their leaders and want to break free. When a change is made, they are supposed to get back their freedom: but somehow, they don’t. 

FEATURE DOCUMENTARY: What Is Democracy?
Directed by: Astra Taylor (Feature) Canada (1hr :47 mins)

Trailer: https://vimeo.com/266692157

Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, What Is Democracy? reflects on a word we too often take for granted. Featuring a diverse cast—including celebrated philosophers, trauma surgeons, factory workers, refugees, and politicians—What Is Democracy? connects past and present, emotion and the intellect, the personal and the political, to provoke and inspire. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means.
