Belief and Disbelief is a short film that makes the viewer relive the turmoil of the 2016 United States Election Day through the eyes of a group of Massachusetts Democrats whose hopes for the presidential election unravel over the course of the day, ending with a surprise victory for Donald Trump. We follow Dana Ribeiro, a staunch Democrat, activist and city counselor of New Bedford, Massachusetts, as she tirelessly pushes for Hillary Clinton as the first woman president throughout the entire day. From the last important efforts to get the vote out through telephone calls and knocking on doors, to the evening gathering of politicians and supporters of the Democratic Party at the Boston Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel where they watch the results come in, Belief and Disbelief revisits a historical moment of deception and fear from the up close, human point of view of Democrat activists and supporters.
