Al Franken: God Spoke

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

The makers of THE WAR ROOM turn their cameras on yet another burgeoning political career. Filmmakers, Nick Doob, Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker followed former Saturday Night Live comedian Al Franken during the election year of 2004 as he joined Air America radio and campaigned for John Kerry. Along the way, the filmmakers captured a fascinating transformation as Franken began to contemplate his own political career that resulted in his hotly contested 2008 run for Senate in Minnesota.

Part of the Spring 2009 season of the Stranger Than Fiction documentary series.
