Description
Filmmaker Jen Senko (THE VANISHING CITY) found the subject of her latest documentary close to home: her father, Frank, and how decades of conservative talk radio and cable news took a toll on him. Tracking links between media and government, Senko comes to a shocking conclusion: Frank had been “brainwashed” by a barrage of Right-wing talking points. And he wasn’t alone — his story, according to Senko, is indicative of an entire generation. Narrated by Matthew Modine, combining a sense of history with in-depth interviews, this thought-provoking chronicle examines fact-denial and what it means for America.
