Swing State Florida, a documentary film in three chapters (The Fields of Immokalee, Liberty City, After Michael) dives into three critical Florida communities that will be influential in swaying the 2020 US election. These are communities used and misused by the political process; they are relied upon for electoral victories, but what do they receive in return?

The documentary film, directed by the Bertelsmann Foundation’s Samuel George, mixes intimate portraits with expert commentary to give a vision of Florida in the run-up to the 2020 election. The challenges documented in the film present struggles replicated in swing states across the country.
