Slay The Dragon for Better Boundaries
Better Boundaries is the nonprofit leading the fight against gerrymandering in Utah. They sponsored Prop 4, the ballot initiative to create Utah's first independent redistricting commission. After success at the ballot box in 2018, they've spent the last eighteen months defending the voter-approved law at the state legislature. Since reaching a compromise with the legislature this year to protect the initiative, they're working to empower communities and voters to make their voices heard in the 2021 redistricting.

Directed with the full force of an investigation by Barak Goodman and Chris Durrance, SLAY THE DRAGON shows how gerrymandering has become an immensely powerful weapon of partisan advantage, creating an unresponsive and unaccountable government. But ahead of the 2020 elections and a new round of redistricting, voters are fighting back. With exclusive access to influential, citizen-led activist groups, as well as the legal team that brought the most important voting rights case in a generation to the Supreme Court, SLAY THE DRAGON chronicles the civic grit that is turning the tide in the battle for the legitimacy of U.S. democracy.
“SLAY THE DRAGON is the most important political film of the year, and it may prove to be one of the key political films of the decade.” — Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
“SLAY THE DRAGON is an excellent film that tells the story of how politicians used gerrymandering to cheat the American people out of equal representation for the past decade and how committed, organized citizens can fight back to restore fairness to our elections. With the next redistricting process set to take place in 2021, the message of SLAY THE DRAGON could not be more timely or more profound – we must end the era of politicians choosing their voters and give power back to the people, where it belongs. Our democracy is at stake.” — Former Attorney General Eric Holder
