As we approach the 2016 presidential election, the Hammer Museum offers a variety of election-themed talks and screenings. Learn more about our Election Fever programming. 

Re-creating the infamous 2000 presidential election and Florida recount, this award-winning film traces the strange, troubling, and near-slapstick series of events that made “hanging chad” part of our vocabulary. Featuring ballots, delegates, and political players locked in a 36-day stalemate that dominated news cycles, the film is an astute criticism of the machinations behind American electoral politics. (2008, dir. Jay Roach, 116 min.)
