SCF, Manatee-Sarasota to Host Filmmaker/Journalist Greg Palast

(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 6, 2016) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) and its film club are partnering with WSLR and WMNF Radio to bring filmmaker and journalist Greg Palast to SCF to present his latest film, “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires and Ballot Bandits.” Two screenings will be offered at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 in SCF’s Neel Performing Arts Center, 5840 26th St. W., Bradenton. A discussion will follow the screening.

Palast is an investigative reporter with the BBC and Rolling Stone Magazine. His film follows the efforts of a group of people, including the Koch brothers and Paul Singer, who are working to purge one million minority voters from the rolls of registered voters. In the film, Palast works to name the people and shine a light on the tactics employed by those working to purge voter registration lists. Palast finds voters who have been accused of voting twice and placed on a blacklist to discover who they are and why they have been accused of voting twice.

Tickets are available at the door for $15 each. SCF students will be admitted free with their student IDs. Advance tickets are available at Proceeds benefit SCF’s film club, WMNF and WSLR.
