Left Out: Beyond the Two-Party Horse Race is a documentary that sheds light on the ways third-party candidates gain support while marginalized by the news media. It is a critique of the mainstream news media's lack of coverage regarding candidates outside the two-party system. Ultimately, it unveils the undemocratic nature of a voting system, which is designed to exclude dissenting voices. The film follows best-selling author, Luis J. Rodriguez, and documents four months of his campaign trail in the 2014 primary election for Governor of California as a Green Party candidate. The documentary expands beyond the election, with interviews from experts such as Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman and Ralph Nader. The story is told from the perspective of the filmmaker on a journey discovering American democracy. Written by Jesse Bertel
