The Sundance Channel wraps the final five weeks of the 2008 presidential campaign with a special DOCDAY slate dedicated to the electoral process. Every Monday night from October 6 through November 3, Sundance will present feature docs and original series about those seeking public office in the U.S. The lineup includes the US premieres of three feature-length docs: Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker’s The Return of the War Room (a Sundance Channel original production); Mary Lambert’s 14 Women; and Vanessa Roth’s The Third Monday in October. Also on board are James Rogan’s Blog Wars, R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor’s 1996 feature A Perfect Candidate, Charles Ferguson’s No End in Sight, Robert Drew’s Primary, Sarah and Emily Kunstler’s short Getting Through to the President, and the Sundance Channel original series The Hill.
