Judicial Watch Documentary “District of Corruption” Showing in Columbus
District of Corruption, a new documentary from conservative D.C. nonprofit Judicial Watch, premieres this weekend at the AMC Lennox Town Center 24 near the campus of The Ohio State University. Columbus is one of only three cities where the film, written and directed by Stephen Bannon, opened on October 26.
“‘The District of Corruption’ chronicles the ongoing battle to clean up government corruption in Washington, DC, focusing intensely on Judicial Watchs efforts to counter the unprecedented corruption and secrecy of the permanent political class,” Judicial Watch wrote in an October 22 press release.
“The film comprehensively exposes the Obama administrations current scandals, including: Operation Fast and Furious; crony capitalism; Solyndra and other ‘green energy;’ federal bailouts and earmarks; ACORN and voter fraud; illegal alien amnesty; and threats to the integrity of the 2012 elections; as well as new attacks on government transparency and accountability.”
District of Corruption is based on the book The Corruption Chronicles, a New York Times bestseller by Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton released in July.
Bannon, the executive director of Breitbart News, also wrote and directed the Occupy Wall Street documentary Occupy Unmasked and the Sarah Palin documentary The Undefeated.
“In the long-running battle to save our country from the big government corruption and crony capitalism that now threatens its very foundations, Judicial Watch is the tip of the spear,” Bannon is quoted as saying in the Judicial Watch press release.
“This film does not pull a single punch. It is brutally honest. And it name names – from both political parties,” Bannon added. “Importantly, however, the movie also provides a reason to hope. This is a movie for the ages and is an incisive history of DC corruption over the last two decades. Our examination of the current crisis within the Obama administration is the most comprehensive narrative yet.”
With a runtime of an 71 minutes, District of Corruption is currently listed on AMC’s website with showtimes at the Lennox Town Center 24 throughout the day for the coming week.
