Breaking Point: The United States and Mexico at the Ballot Box

Breaking Point: The United States and Mexico at the Ballot Box

Take an on the ground journey through two critical elections of 2018 - the Mexican general election, and the United States' mid-term elections. In West Virginia, Richard Ojeda, a former Major in the US Army (and now 2020 US Presidential candidate), runs for congress as a Democrat in a deeply Republican district. Can he flip a red seat blue? Can a group of ex-coal miners learn computer coding and find employment in the new digital economy? And can a group of young woman band together following the depths of opioid addiction to successfully restart their lives? Meanwhile, on the other side of the border, Mexico has spent much of the last century dominated by the same political party. But in 2018, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador began a shocking rise. What's behind this new movement? And can it withstand the pressures of corruption and political violence? From the misty mountains of West Virginia to the indigenous villages of Oaxaca, this is what democracy looks like. And we are at a breaking point.

It's by far my favourite film, a rousing, titanic epic that's so ambitious it seems to transcend the boundaries of cinema and go to places I've never seen the medium venture before.
