This documentary shows curious cynics and aspiring politicians how to run for office with little or no money. Full of laughs and satirical commentary, this election adventure should leave even the most skeptical viewer thinking, "If these guys can do it, so can I!"

Democracy 4 Dummies follows the campaign trail of Dylan Perceval-Maxwell, an eccentric Green Party candidate and vegetable oil car driver in Montreal. While Dylan ultimately loses to federal opposition leader Gilles Duceppe, he gets the most votes of any Green Party candidate in Quebec.

Dylan and other Green Party candidates show us how to raise funds and collect signatures with dogs, skirts and anything else catchy. Viewers learn how important it is to confront one's opponent, attract media attention and get out the vote. The film features funny quotes from famous politicians throughout history, boasts a great indie soundtrack, and it's so grassroots it began with a borrowed camera. It is destined to inspire more unlikely candidates to run for office.
