Last Party 2000

Synopsis
An exploration of the state of democracy in the modern day United States of America.
Filmed over the last six months of the 2000 Presidential election, Phillip Seymour Hoffman starts documenting the campaign at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, but spends more time outside, in the street protests and police actions than in the orchestrated conventions. Clearly biased towards the left, the bigger interviewees include Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, political commentator and TV host Bill Maher, Michael Moore, Jesse Jackson and fellow liberal actors Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. However, a wide range of opinions are given their say - senators from both parties, the religious right, the NRA, rock stars, as well as the peaceful protestors on the street fighting to find an outlet for their views.
