Citizen Koch (Jan-2013)

Directors: Carl Deal; Tia Lessin

Writers: Carl Deal; Tia Lessin

Keywords: Political Documentary

Political documentary examines "big-money" interests behind the meteoric rise of the Tea Party.

The Tea Party, a right-wing American political movement equal parts anti-government regulation and pro-social conservatism, found its footing in contemporary political discourse with the help of "big-money" donors emboldened by the Supreme Court's abolition of campaign finance laws like Charles G. and David H. Koch. Citizen Koch is a left-leaning documentary attempting to examine this curious development in modern American politics, framing it as a concentrated effort by monied private interests to break the collective will of the general public.
