LINE IN THE STREET is a film about partisan gerrymandering in Pennsylvania.  It tells the story of citizen activists demanding reform, and the landmark state court victory of 2018; a state court precedent which re-drew all 18 congressional districts in 2018. Unlike any other film on the subject, LINE IN THE STREET is premised on the state’s right/state constitutional argument for redistricting reform. In light of the June 27, 2019 U.S. Supreme Court ruling -- state constitutions are now the only path to gerrymander reform.

LINE IN THE STREET tells a compelling story of grass roots heroes and legislative villains, it is also a primer on the nature of the oldest and most successful form of vote suppressions – partisan redistricting.

LINE IN THE STREET shines a beacon of hope on the plain language found in every state constitution; the right to vote, the right to free and fair elections, and the right to equal protection of the law. The plain language voting rights that every state legislator in the country swore to uphold when they took office.
