“Slay the Dragon” shows the terrifying spread of gerrymandering and follows the activists determined to stop it


Just how deep do vote rigging, district redrawing and gerrymandering go? Barak Goodman, co-director and producer of “Slay the Dragon,” and David Daley, bestselling author of “Ratf**ked: Why Your Vote Doesn't Count” and Salon contributor, joined Salon’s Andrew O’Hehir to discuss how Republicans have mastered these tactics and seen sizable political gains since 2008.

The documentary “Slay the Dragon,” which also offers some room for hope, is screening now at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
