Unlikely news reporter Janine Costello-White travels to New Hampshire seeking to get the inside scoop on the first-in-the-nation Presidential Primary for her independent news station. BROADCAST is the abandoned love child of WORKING GIRL and THE WAR ROOM, that manages to observe the everyday drudgery and the random horrors a female reporter faces while covering a major news story. Shot on VHS, the documentary maintains a nostalgic feel while depicting the discordant political landscape we are living in today.
ABOUT: “Candidates: Connections Made and Missed”
Every four years, New Hampshire is invaded by candidates and their campaign organizations, all seeking the favor of voters in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state. Photographer Roger Goun spent much of 2015 criss-crossing the state, photographing the candidates as they interacted with individual voters. The resulting pictures, by turns funny and earnest, open a window into New Hampshire’s retail political scene, where elections are won and lost one voter at time. A selection of the best of these images will be on display.
