Redistricting - The Movie?

Filmmaker Jeff Reichert is putting together a movie about redistricting. He contacted me recently and had this to say on his blog:

"We’ve recently befriended the folks behind the ultra-cool Redistricting Game. I’ve had a number of calls with project leader Chris Swain, and am currently preparing some visual treatments that we’ll hopefully use as a basis for future collaboration. In an ideal world, we’ll work closely with the game designers to create animation sequences tailor-made for the film. Please do check out the game. It’s very elegant, informative, and most of all, fun."

Jeff has been meeting with the usual redistricting reform suspects in DC including John Tanner's office. It would be exciting to see The Redistricting Game included in Jeff's film.

Let him know about my posts about gerrymandering.

In particular, make sure that he is aware of ideas to algorithmically create districts (here and here).
