Swing State Florida: A Documentary


A Documentary on Those that are Needed but Nonetheless Abused

Please join us at the NYC premiere of Swing State Florida, a documentary film in three chapters (The Fields of Immokalee, Liberty City, After Michael). The documentary dives into three critical Florida communities that we believe will be influential in swaying the 2020 US election. These are communities used and misused by the political process; they are relied upon for electoral victories, but what do they receive in return?

The documentary film, directed by the Bertelsmann Foundation’s Samuel George, mixes intimate portraits with expert commentary to give a vision of Florida in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election. The challenges documented in the film present struggles replicated in swing states across the country.

The documentary film will be followed by a panel discussion with journalist and producer Soledad O’Brien and New York Times international editor Michael Slackman in addition to the Bertelsmann Foundation’s filmmaker Samuel George.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, February 18th, 2020.

Presented by the Bertelsmann Foundation, Humanity in Action and The New School.
