Judicial Watch, Victory Film Group Announce New Feature Film Exposing DC Corruption

From the Writer/Director of "Generation Zero," and "The Undefeated," the Untold Story of Judicial Watch's Battle Against Secrecy, Scandal and Corruption; Trailer for New Movie From "Tea Party" Director to Be Released at CPAC's Ronald Reagan Banquet; Companion Book Scheduled for Summer 2012 Release From Simon & Schuster

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Feb 10, 2012) - Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that Victory Film Group, producers of the Sarah Palin film The Undefeated, will unveil a trailer at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for its upcoming feature film spotlighting the untold story of Judicial Watch's epic battle against the bipartisan corruption of the permanent political class and the Obama administration. The trailer release will take place during CPAC's Ronald Reagan Banquet, which is sponsored by Judicial Watch, on Friday, February 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Marriott Ballroom, Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, DC.

Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon and produced in association with Constant Motion Entertainment, the Judicial Watch film will be released in the summer of 2012. The film will chronicle Judicial Watch's heroic battles to clean up government corruption in Washington, DC, focusing most comprehensively on its efforts to counter the unprecedented corruption and secrecy of the permanent political class and, currently, the Obama Administration. The film will comprehensively expose the Beltway's current scandals, including: "Fast and Furious"; Solyndra and "Green Energy"; federal bailouts and earmarks; the New Black Panthers; ACORN and voter fraud; stealth amnesty; threats to the integrity of the 2012 elections; and new attacks on government transparency and accountability.

The film is a companion piece to the upcoming book, "The Corruption Chronicles, Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government," by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. The Judicial Watch book is scheduled for release in July 2012, from Simon & Schuster's Threshold Editions.

"For too long our nation has suffered through a massive expansion of government power and corruption, the likes of which we haven't seen in generations," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "The American people are tired of Washington corruption -- that's why Judicial Watch is the largest grassroots watchdog group in the nation. Our new partnership with Stephen Bannon, the nation's preeminent conservative filmmaker, will educate the American people by giving them the unvarnished truth about Obama's corrupt machine and the longstanding problem of bipartisan corruption in Washington, DC."

"In the long-running battle to save our country from big government corruption and cronyism that now threatens its very foundations, Judicial Watch is the tip of the spear," said Stephen K. Bannon. "This film will not pull a single punch. We will be brutally honest. And we will name names -- from both political parties. But we will also provide a reason to hope."

"For nearly two decades a small band of patriots has battled government secrecy and scandal in Washington, DC, through three presidential administrations. Judicial Watch has fascinating story to tell and Steve Bannon is the right man to tell it," said Constant Motion Entertainment CEO Brandon Millett.

Judicial Watch has filed approximately 800 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and more than 60 lawsuits against the Obama administration on issues ranging from Obamacare to continued funding of the criminal ACORN network; from tracking Wall Street bailout money to the unconstitutional use of czars; and the attempted corruption of the 2010 and 2012 elections by senior Obama administration officials. This follows historic lawsuits against the Bush administration over secrecy issues, one of which ended up before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Stephen K. Bannon is the award-winning filmmaker behind critically acclaimed documentaries and feature films such as: In The Face of Evil, Still Point in a Turning World, and The Tea Party Trilogy: Generation Zero, Fire From the Heartland, and Battle for America. Mr. Bannon is a former Naval Officer and Goldman Sachs investment banker, a co-founder of the National Tea Party Federation, and is a frequent speaker at Tea Party conventions and conferences. He is also host of The Victory Sessions (www.thevictorysessions.com), the top-rated weekend radio program on KABC in Los Angeles.
