Citizen Koch

Friday, June 6 - Thursday, June 19, 2014

In this searing exposé on the state of American democracy, Oscar-nominated directors Deal and Lessin (Trouble the Water; co-producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 & Bowling for Columbine) follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. In the wake of the Citizens United ruling, the film investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process. Both humorous and deeply troubling, CITIZEN KOCH is an essential portrait of our political time.
