About The Film
It’s no secret that special interests bankroll campaigns and relentlessly lobby to rig the system in their favor. Unrepresented pulls back the curtain to investigate the mechanisms that propel Congress's corruption cycle- giving political insiders enormous, unchecked power.
Democratic and Republican party leaders alike encourage us to believe that the political divide is wider than ever. In reality, the vast majority of Americans agree on basic reforms to outlaw the wanton political corruption from both parties, but politicians won't pass them.
Unrepresented reveals the opportunities and challenges as committed public servants, non-partisan activists, and everyday Americans build unprecedented movements to fix the broken system before it's too late.
"This is not a story about the rich versus the poor. It looks like that story, but it's actually a story of how the system is built."
Ayad Akhtar | Playwright, Novelist
