Democracy for Sale

Clowns have been pointing out the ills of the world at least since Shakespeare, so it shouldn't be all that surprising that Zach Galifianakis, whose comedic persona tends toward the surrealistically unhinged, has made Democracy for Sale, a serious-minded documentary about financial malfeasance in the current politics of his home state. But somehow it does take a second to digest the fact that the loon from The Hangover and the deadpan interviewer of Between Two Ferns has gone so deep in exploring this timely and crucial topic. The doc will run on Epix as part of a series called America Divided, but here's your chance to catch a free sneak preview, along with a post-showing panel discussion that will feature Reverend William Barber, who leads the state NAACP, and representatives of Working Films and Democracy NC. The screening is free if you RSVP at the link below. —David Klein
