Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival '06. (Please see additional information below.)
With the plight of 2004 Ohio voters at the heart of the film's story, we feel that you can play a critical role in ensuring that their stories are heard.

This film is uniquely poised to mobilize voters and promote integrity in our electoral process in '06 and election years to come. We look forward to seeing you then and exploring with you the many ways AMERICAN BLACKOUT can be utilized to educate and mobilize voters in advance of the fall elections.
