BAY AREA PREMIERE OF “UNCOUNTED”

NASHVILLE, TN (January 4, 2008)—The Bay Area theatrical premiere of the new film the nation is talking about, UNCOUNTED: The New Math of American Elections, occurs January 17 in Oakland. UNCOUNTED is a feature-length documentary that exposes a threat to the core of our democracy – our right to vote. The national theatrical premiere of UNCOUNTED in Nashville drew a sellout crowd in November. In addition, the film was recently selected to participate in the prestigious 2008 Durango Film Festival in Colorado.
UNCOUNTED is written, produced, and directed by multiple Emmy award-winner David Earnhardt. The film examines how the fraud that changed the outcome of the 2004 election led to even greater election fraud in 2006 and now looms as an unbridled threat in 2008. In factual and logical ways, a variety of computer, statistical, and election experts show how the unethical and illegal manipulation of the vote can change the outcome of every election – whether on a local, state, or national level.
“California is a critical part of the UNCOUNTED story,” says Earnhardt. “California is where one man with everything to lose blew the whistle on the illegal activities of Diebold, one of the biggest makers of voting machines in America.” In UNCOUNTED that man, Steve Heller, describes the heavy price he paid just for telling the truth. Former Oakland Tribune investigative reporter Ian Hoffman helped Heller make his story public. Eventually, the California Secretary of State took Diebold to task for using illegal and unsecured software in voting machines.
Earnhardt says the approaching February 5 primaries make the theatrical premiere timely. “With the California presidential primaries just around the corner”, says Earnhardt, “this film is a must-see for anyone who believes that the core of our democracy is the right to vote and have that vote counted as cast."
The Bay Area theatrical premiere is being sponsored by Green 960 AM and begins at 7PM on Thursday, January 17 at the historic Grand Lake Theatre, 3200 Grand Avenue in Oakland. Ticket prices are $10. The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with David Earnhardt, the filmmaker, along with Brad Friedman of Bradblog.com and former Oakland Tribune investigative reporter Ian Hoffman.
David Earnhardt is a producer/director of 30 years and a former broadcast executive. He is a winner of both Emmy and Iris awards. A national documentary on children’s rights, a biographical documentary about jazz legend Helen Humes, and a comedy special featuring an up-and-coming Jay Leno are among Earnhardt’s many credits.
