The Real Activist is a documentary tracking the efforts of an election reform activist from Northern California. This historic piece exposes the realities of the David vs. Goliath battle to secure the United States election systems within a corrupt political environment. U.S. elections are being hacked by foreign governments because corporate-owned proprietary vote counting software is severely outdated and subject to undetected manipulation. The Real Activist questions the legitimacy of the U.S. government itself through the personal lens of open source activist crusader Brent Turner. Specifically, educating people about having transparent open source software in our voting machines. To inspire people not only to act on their civil rights by voting, but to understand the outdated software we use in our country may not be counting our votes accurately.
