Gerrymandering, voter suppression, disinformation… Do our votes matter anymore? Uncivil War unravels a web of threats to American elections, separates truth from fiction, and exposes a hidden war against democracy itself. Through conversations with experts, politicians, and activists fighting on both sides of the partisan divide, we examine our system of government and search for a way to renew it.


Tom Glynn is an experienced film director and producer. Most recently he partnered with BFNA to direct The Troubles with Brexit, a documentary examining the history of conflict in Northern Ireland and the unintended consequences of Brexit there. In 2014, Tom wrote and directed Automotive, the LATimes’ “pick of the Dances With Films Festival,” a neo-noir shot entirely from inside a ’64 Mercury. Prior, he and Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar teamed up with Joseph Costello to make the critically acclaimed film The War Within (Magnolia, 2006). The film was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards including Best Screenplay. Tom founded Gauge Theory Creative in 2011, a production company based in Santa Monica, CA with clients including NBATV, Bleacher Report, Special Olympics, Museum of Natural History, Tiffany & Co., MAGIC Fashion Shows, Coterie and more. Tom earned an MFA in directing from Columbia University, and a BA in Physics from Amherst College.
