Election Day 2016
A once-in-a-lifetime film About a once-in-a-lifetime dAY
After a long and contentious presidential campaign, more than 10,000 people spontaneously visited Susan B. Anthony's grave in Rochester, New York to pay tribute to America's most famous suffragist and place their “I Voted Today” stickers upon her headstone as an expression of their pride and gratitude. Although the grave was still a gathering place the next day, the atmosphere was far different.
Eight producers, eight cinematographers, and three photographers spent two days capturing this significant event in American history to create ELECTION DAY 2016. This 15-minute film is the first collaborative film project by the Rochester Documentary Filmmakers.
The proceeds of every DVD and poster purchase goes to our new Election Day Grant awarded annually to an active member of Rochester Documentary Filmmakers in need of finishing funds.
