Organizer/Authorjulia bernd
On Sunday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m., there will be a screening of the documentary Considering Democracy at First Baptist Church of Palo Alto, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Keya Lea Horiuchi.

What does the rest of the world think of U.S. domestic and foreign policy? While the U.S. is perceived as a beacon of democracy, how does it compare to other democratic nations? Americans are continually told through the media that freedom and democracy are supported abroad, but is it true?

Shot in ten countries, Considering Democracy weaves together seemingly different topics into an interconnected tapestry of information. People from around the world act as a mirror for Americans to see a reflection of the political power of the United States.

The hour-length documentary brings views from around the world, mixing it with information and empowerment, including study and discussion menus to help people continue the dialog.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
