Tuesday, October 16, 7:00 - 9:00 pm,  Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, NY. Film:  Left Out:  Beyond the Two Party Horse Race.
 Left Out:  Beyond the Two Party Horse Race  (64minutes, 2017) is a documentary that sheds light on the ways third-party candidates gain support while marginalized by the news media. It is a critique of the mainstream news media’s lack of coverage regarding candidates outside the two-party system. Ultimately, it  unveils the undemocratic nature of a voting system, which is designed to exclude dissenting voices. The film follows best-selling author, Luis J. Rodriguez, and documents four months of his campaign trail in the 2014 primary election for Governor of California as a Green Party candidate. The documentary includes interviews from experts such as Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman and Ralph Nader.   Sponsored by Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace.  Information: 518-466-1192.
