What does democracy mean to you?

Nice choice of an almost deserted Smithfield (Dublin) for a launch video for the Darklight Democracy competition:

Make a short film, one inspired by the notion of Democracy & Dialogue. Go on… It doesn’t matter if you record it on your mobile phone, a state of the art digital video camera, or create your own DIY animation – the idea’s the thing. Make it a comedy, a tragedy, a documentary, an animation – whatever takes your fancy. It’s about self-expression. And if it gets people thinking, even better.

There’s a related day long seminar on 8th August, we’ll be picking up on the live feed here on Slugger if you can’t make it to Dublin…
