Presented with Common Cause Nebraska and Nebraskans for Civic Reform, this one-time screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
Alternately terrifying and funny, CITIZEN KOCH is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times. In this searing exposé on the state of democracy in America, Academy Award-nominated directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (TROUBLE THE WATER; co-producers of FAHRENHEIT 9/11 and BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE) follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. CITIZEN KOCH investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process.
Following the screening will be a panel discussion with former Nebraska State Senator Scott Lautenbaugh, Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Executive Director Frank Daley, and Executive Director of Heartland Workers Center Sergio Sosa.
