Kartemquin Educational Films

Sparking democracy through documentary since 1966, Kartemquin is a collaborative community that empowers documentary makers who create stories that foster a more engaged and just society.


Democracy Fund is proud to support Kartemquin’s new project, Represent. Represent is a feature length documentary about three women running for local office for the first time. Their stories will inform other women about the process of running for office, and bridge divides by allowing audiences to connect empathetically with real people and authentic stories that illuminate truth in new ways.
