The movie trailer, ticket, and theater information is available at www.districtofcorruptionmovie.com.
"The District of Corruption" chronicles the ongoing battle to clean up government corruption in Washington, DC, focusing intensely on Judicial Watch's efforts to counter the unprecedented corruption and secrecy of the permanent political class. The film comprehensively exposes the Obama administration's 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.
"The District of Corruption" features interviews with Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, Director of Investigations and Research Chris Farrell and Director of Litigation Paul Orfanedes, as well as some of the conservative movement's most influential and cutting-edge voices, including J. Christian Adams (Election Law Center), Matthew Boyle (The Daily Caller), Mike Flynn (Breitbart.com), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Vern McKinley (author, Financing Failure: A Century of Bailouts), Anita Moncrief (former ACORN insider), Katie Pavlich (Townhall.com), Kerry Picket (The Washington Times), Peter Schweizer (Author, Throw Them All Out), Mark Tapscott (The Washington Examiner), and Matthew Vadum (Author, Subversion Inc.: How Obama's ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayer).
Judicial Watch is also partnering with Movie to Movement, the grassroots group that helped turn out box-office-busting numbers of movie goers for the "Obama 2016."
"The District of Corruption" is a companion piece to the New York Times best-selling book, "The Corruption Chronicles, Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government," by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, which was released in July by 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. "This fall will see more than a few fictional portrayals of today's Washington in theaters. This movie is the unvarnished truth. The American people are tired of Washington corruption from both parties -- 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 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 the big government corruption and crony capitalism that now threatens its very foundations, Judicial Watch is the tip of the spear," said Stephen K. Bannon. "This film does not pull a single punch. It is brutally honest. And it name names -- from both political parties. 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."
Judicial Watch has filed 950 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and more than 90 lawsuits against the Obama administration on issues ranging from Obamacare to the continued funding of the criminal ACORN network; from tracking Wall Street bailout money to the unconstitutional use of czars; and to the attacks on the integrity of our nation's elections. This documentary 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," "The Undefeated," and The Tea Party Trilogy: "Generation Zero," "Fire From the Heartland," and "Battle for America." Mr. Bannon is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News, 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.
