Democratic Club To Show Important Film
At its meeting on Wednesday, July 10 the Culver City Democratic Club will feature a free screening of Brave New Films' "War on Whistleblowers," directed by award-winning filmmaker, Robert Greenwald.
Brave New Films is based in Culver City and the club is honored to present this very important work. Here is a synopsis:
"In a Democracy, citizens are entitled to the freedom of information and the freedom of the press, but what happens when that democratic government turns its back on the truth and begins to punish those who stand up to falsehood, secrecy, and deception? In Robert Greenwald's latest film for Brave New Foundation, we reveal the war targeted at the people who put the US constitution before everything. We reveal the War on Whistleblowers."

Robert Greenwald's biography from www.imdb.com:
Robert Greenwald is the director/producer of "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" (2004), a documentary exposing the right-wing bias of Fox News. The film was initially distributed via internet DVD sales, but strong viewer demand led to an unusual post-DVD theatrical release in the summer of 2004.
Greenwald is also the executive producer of a trilogy of "Un" documentaries: "Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election" (2002), directed by Richard Ray Perez and Joan Sekler; "Uncovered: The Iraq War" (2003), directed by Greeenwald; and the upcoming "Unconstitutional" (2004), directed by Nonny de la Pena, about the post 9/11 erosion of American civil liberties.
Greenwald also produced and directed the feature film, "Steal This Movie," starring Vincent D'Onofrio as 60's radical Abbie Hoffman, as well as "Breaking Up," starring Russell Crowe and Salma Hayek.
