How Ohio Pulled it Off (http://www.howohiopulleditoff.com/) is a new documentary investigating fraud during the 2004 election.

The film’s directors CHARLA BARKER, Matthew Kraus, and MARIANA QUIROGA (http://www.howohiopulleditoff.com/directors/) will present the film and entertain questions at the screening. All three are products of the OU School of Film graduate program.

Did your vote count in 2004? Will it count in 2008? On Election Night 2004, across the United States and the world, people waited with breathless anticipation to discover who would hold the greatest power position on the planet. The presidential decision came down to one state among fifty: Ohio. The ultimate result was satisfying for some, surprising for many. What really happened in Ohio, on that fateful day in November?

How Ohio Pulled it Off chronicles the theft of the presidency, and the public outcry that followed. Infuriated by official malfeasance and partisan indifference, citizens took swift action. Multitudes protested in the streets, the voting rights movement was revitalized, and the powers-that-be were forced to pay attention. The story continues today, casting a shadow of uncertainty on the 2008 election and beyond.

Official selection: Athens International Film and Video Festival 2007
