Noted filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream) has teamed up with Generation Z activists from all over the country to find out why they are voting in order to get young people to the polls on November 6.
Aronofsky queried his subjects, who are calling on their peers to vote in the midterm elections, in a short film for the Sierra Club Voter Education Fund. Produced by Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures and Chromista, the video features people active in movements for indigenous rights, gun control, rights for the disabled, immigrant rights, climate justice and transgender equality, among others, passionately advocating for participation in this November’s election.
The film crew traveled across the country to capture the messages from the activists included in the video. The activists who participated include Tarr, Hogg, Man, Martinez and Grimm, plus Brinkley Smithers, Chelsea Turner, Delaney Reynolds, Jackson Hinkle, Edna Chavez, Justice Jamal Jones, Lisbeth Chavarria, Sandra Cornejo, Lulu Cerone and Ohitika Lewis.
