Manifest Hope: DC -- MANIFEST HOPE DC is a chronicle of the grassroots art movement started by SHEPARD FAIREY (Obama 'Hope' artist) and YOSI SERGANT (Evolutionary Media), that helped lead Obama to victory.

Political cartoon footage, plus live musical performances by SANTOGOLD, DE LA SOUL, and MOBY, highlight the film. MANIFEST HOPE DC is a visual call to action, with cameos from volunteer activists Rosario Dawson, Heather Graham, and Michael Stipe. DIRECTED BY Alfred Gragg
