What Is Democracy? - Trailer Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis,Â What Is Democracy?Â reflects on a word we too often take for granted. Director Astra Taylorâ€™s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athensâ€™ groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalismâ€™s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor. Featuring a diverse castâ€”including celebrated theorists, trauma surgeons, activists, factory workers, asylum seekers, and former prime ministersâ€”this urgent film connects the past and the present, the emotional and the intellectual, the personal and the political, in order to provoke and inspire. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means. Directed by: Astra Taylor Starring:
