NASHVILLE, TN (January 4, 2008)--The West Coast theatrical premiere of
the new film the nation is talking about, UNCOUNTED: The New Math of
American Elections, occurs January 15 as an Official Gold Circle
Screening of the Sacramento Film & Music Festival.

"We've always had an eye for topical political and social impact
documentaries," said Sacramento Film and Music Festival Co-Director,
Anthony Sheppard. "So a well researched and produced documentary about
the integrity of the voting system, just as we're going into an election
year, was a perfect opportunity for our off-season screening series."
The Bay Area premiere is set for Oakland on January 17.

UNCOUNTED, which attracted a sellout crowd to a recent theatrical
premiere in Nashville, is written, produced, and directed by multiple
Emmy award-winner David Earnhardt. The film examines how the fraud that
changed the outcome of the 2004 election led to even greater election
fraud in 2006 and now looms as an unbridled threat in 2008. In factual
and logical ways, a variety of computer, statistical, and election
experts show how the unethical and illegal manipulation of the vote can
change the outcome of every election - whether on a local, state, or
national level.

"California is a critical part of the UNCOUNTED story," says Earnhardt.
"California is where one man with everything to lose blew the whistle on
the illegal activities of Diebold, one of the biggest makers of voting
machines in America." In UNCOUNTED that man, Steve Heller, describes
the heavy price he paid just for telling the truth. Former Oakland
Tribune investigative reporter Ian Hoffman helped Heller make his story
public. Eventually, the California Secretary of State took Diebold to
task for using illegal and unsecured software in voting machines.

The West Coast premiere of UNCOUNTED is sponsored by KSAC 1240AM, The
Peter B. Collins Show, and the Crest Theatre. Additional support comes
from Sacramento for Democracy, a group committed to free, fair and open
elections. The organization's Communication Director, Bill Lackemacher,
says the approaching February 5 primaries make the theatrical premiere
timely. "With the California presidential primaries just around the
corner, now is the time for the average citizen to learn about the
vulnerabilities with our voting systems and what they can do to
safeguard our democracy," says Lackemacher. He enthusiastically adds,
"This film is a must-see for anyone who believes that the core of our
democracy is the right to vote and have that vote counted as cast."
The Oakland screening is sponsored by Green 960 AM.

The West Coast premiere screenings are on Tuesday, January 15 at the
Crest Theatre, 1013 K Street in Downtown Sacramento. Show times are
5:30 and 8:00 PM. Tickets for the Sacramento screenings can be
purchased online at
http://www.tickets.com/browseother.cgi?minpid=6145879 and at the Crest
Theatre box office.

The Bay Area theatrical premiere is at 7:00 PM on Thursday, January 17
at the historic Grand Lake Theatre, 3200 Grand Avenue in Oakland.

The admission price is $10 for all shows.

A question and answer session featuring the filmmaker, David Earnhardt,
and Brad Friedman of Bradblog.com will follow each screening. Former
Oakland Tribune investigative reporter Ian Hoffman will join the
discussion at the Oakland screening.

David Earnhardt is a producer/director of 30 years and a former
broadcast executive. He is a winner of both Emmy and Iris awards. A
national documentary on children's rights, a biographical documentary
about jazz legend Helen Humes, and a comedy special featuring an
up-and-coming Jay Leno are among Earnhardt's many credits.
