DC Vote Hosts Screening of "Un-Natural State"

DC Vote, the nonprofit group pushing for voting representation in Congress for the District's 600,000 residents, will host a screening of the feature-length documentary, "Un-Natural State," on Wednesday.

The screening will begin at 8 p.m. at the Avalon Theater in Friendship Heights and will include a discussion with former U.S. Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia and DC Vote board member Trish Vradenburg. The movie, directed by DC filmmaker Kirk Mangels and produced by Brad Mendelsohn, features the District's nonvoting congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Hardball's Chris Matthews and Mayor Adrian Fenty.

Tickets can be purchased for $25 (or for $10 with membership in DC Vote) here. Proceeds go to DC Vote. Doors open at 7:45 p.m.

Here's some praise for "Un-Natural State" from this year's FilmFest DC:

"I love this film for so many reasons, but I'm not going to tell you why - I want you to watch it and see for yourself!" - Grace Guggenheim, DC filmmaker

"...lush cinematography, witty editing, and fascinating vistas of the District -- the film glides along with engaging flair." - Dave Nuttycombe, City Paper

"Washington looks just gorgeous in this loving piece of advocacy for D.C. voting a piece of gentle propaganda, beautifully wrought, this film is compelling." Marc Fisher, Washington Post
