    Uploaded Feb 13, 2014
    Sundance-winner BALLOT MEASURE 9 shocked audiences with its inside views of a divisive gay-rights battle and the unprecedented violence it provoked. Local activists slept with guns under their beds and had full-time police protection. Families were torn apart, neighbor set against neighbor.
    A “Yes” vote on Oregon’s measure “9” would revoke civil rights protections and constitutionally mandate schools to teach that homosexuality is “abnormal, wrong, unnatural and perverse.” A hostile discourse resulted, with the inevitable rise of anti-gay attacks. Director MacDonald ducks behind the headlines to bare the passions and strategies that drove both sides. Culled from hundreds of hours shot over 9 months leading to the election, BALLOT MEASURE 9 tells a story of driving urgency. As the violence escalates, the documentary acquires the tension and suspense of a fiction film.
