The Council

The Council



Based on close observation of the workings of city councils around the nation “The Council” toys with the inherent minutia of small town politics and the strange personalities drawn to these offices as well as the genuinely earnest practice of government at its most fundamental level. The Council discovers that the individual voice can still be heard, but you may want to pay close attention to who is listening and what their motivations are.

Cupples and directed by Daryl Harris) show the public servants of

great comic detail. There’s even a message that tries to shout through
the inspired mayhem.”
