We heard from Yudhvir Ranchod – from Why Democracy? Outreach. Why Democracy? is a documentary project using film to start a global conversation about democracy. The films produced by the project have a common reference beyond the thematic. Both the global broadcast and the debates arising from the films lead to a greater understanding concerning both the conditions of governance facing people in different societies and cultures, as well as a broader understanding of democracy. And the long-term educational perspective will allow for maximum use of the combined elements of the project. The films will be accompanied by a widespread post-transmission distribution programme on DVD as part of the global project. Yudhvir explained more.
