First look: Slay the Dragon trailer

A documentary about gerrymandering from Participant Media, "Slay the Dragon," premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27.

We have a sneak peek at the trailer, ahead of Supreme Court oral arguments today on partisan-redistricting cases from Maryland and North Carolina.

  • The film, by directors Barak Goodman and Chris Durrance, follows citizens' groups and everyday people as they fight against "secretive, high-tech gerrymandering" that they see as undermining democracy.
  • Katie Fahey, a Michigander who formed Voters Not Politicians, works in the film "to bring a measure onto the state's ballot to require an independent group —not the legislature — to draw the lines."
