Astra Taylor’s “What is Democracy” debuts at Toronto International Film Festival

Astra Taylor received the 2015 American Book Award for “The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age.” Thom Powers interviews her about her third film, What is Democracy, which was screened at the 43rd annual Toronto International Film Festival.

“What is Democracy? — the title and central question of Astra Taylor’s new documentary — forgoes simple answers in favour of a series of compelling contradictions, one of which is that democracy is both thought and action.”
