    This feature-length video offers a comprehensive survey of the major third party efforts in American politics today. It features interviews with leaders in the Libertarian, Green, Reform, Labor, Communist, Socialist, Working Families, and Workers World parties, plus commentary from activists and academics including Ronnie Dugger, Frances Fox Piven, Howard Zinn, Jeremy Brecher, and Noam Chomsky, among others.

    Third Party looks carefully at what motivates and inspires parties vying for a foothold in a country dominated politically by the Democrats and Republicans, and explores their strategies, their issues, and their thoughts on the obstacles they face. It also follows the third-party candidacy of Mike DeRosa, a Green Party member running for State Senate in Connecticut, illustrating what it's like to run as a political alternative in a system and culture designed primarily for two parties.
