Premiere screening of the gerrymandering documentary, “Line in the Street.” Director Robert Millman will be available for a Q&A after the show.
“Line in the Street,” a documentary film about gerrymandering, focuses on the ongoing political and legal battles in Pennsylvania, one of the most heavily gerrymandered states in the country.
“Line in the Street” follows the two-pronged fight against gerrymandering: redress through the courts and reform through the state legislature.
The legal challenge, brought by the League of Women Voters PA and 18 Pennsylvania voters, made the argument of challenging gerrymandered maps on state constitutional grounds. This landmark case reversed gerrymandered congressional maps on the general principles of the state constitution.
