Let My People Vote

Let My People Vote

Directed and Produced by Gilda Ann Brasch


Filmed in Tampa, 2 days before the 2016 presidential election, Let My People Vote is a verité short that covers a day-in-the-life of civil rights activist, Desmond Meade.

It's Sunday, “Souls to the Polls,” the last day of early voting. Desmond is canvasing door to door.  

His mission? Assisting people in voting - something his "forefathers marched and died for."

What begins as an upbeat day of faith in our democratic process, ends with a harsh wake up call.
