About the film “The Conspiracists”:
After a January 6th insurrectionist is sentenced to two and a half years in prison for her part in the storming of The Capitol, a researcher and a filmmaker embark on a road trip with her from DC to Idaho. En route they visit her fellow insurrectionists and hear about their respective journeys of “awakening”. The insurrectionist takes the researcher and filmmaker on an intense journey into her labyrinth of conspiracy, but is disappointed when, by the end of the trip, she has not succeeded in her mission to elevate them out of their 3D world and help them to see the truth.
Liz is a British documentary filmmaker. Her work is centred around human rights issues. She is the director and editor of the feature documentary “I Am Gen Z”, which explores the impact of digital technology on the lives and behaviours of the first generation to grow up with smartphones in their pockets. The film premiered at CPH:DOX in 2021 and won the award for Best Feature at The Lower East Side Film Festival in 2022. Her current documentary work is the outcome of years of study on the issues driving today’s democratic backsliding. However, researching the issues can only go so far. Her approach of spending time with affected communities on the frontline delivers a much deeper understanding of the forces driving these trends.
Limited parking is available.
