ED2016 Poster LR

ELECTION DAY 2016 (15 mins)

A collaborative new short film from the Rochester Documentary Filmmakers Group.

Produced by Low to the Ground Productions + Epic10 Films.

After a long and contentious presidential campaign, 10,000 people spontaneously came to pay tribute to Susan B. Anthony’s grave in Rochester, NY. They placed their “I Voted” stickers upon her headstone and expressed their pride and gratitude to America’s most famous suffragette.

On November 9, 2016, the gravesite, although still a gathering place, was far different.

This film captures the stories, hopes, laughter and tears of this historic moment.
