While we can’t meet up over popcorn and a glass of wine at the Tropic, we can still enjoy some of the best new independent film! The Tropic’s new Virtual Cinematheque Series now offers you the chance to check out new movies at home—and to support the Tropic while you do!
For $7-$12, you can access select films; next up is the premiere of the new documentary “Slay the Dragon,” which makes a powerful argument to rescue democracy by ending gerrymandering. Just click “Buy Tickets” above to access the movie; your $6.99 ticket purchase proceeds go to the Tropic, and will help us hit the ground running when we’re able to reopen.
Thank you for your support. We can’t wait to share this and upcoming movies with you!
About the Film
It influences elections and sways outcomes — gerrymandering has become a hot-button political topic and symbol for everything broken about the American electoral process. Ten years ago, a secretive, high-tech gerrymandering initiative launched, and today it threatens to undermine our democracy. “Slay the Dragon” follows everyday people as they fight on the front lines to change the system and make sure their votes matter.
