Free Range Films
presents the award winning documentary “The Brainwashing of my Dad”
on Friday, November 11 at 7pm
. The film will be shown at the Suquamish United Church of Christ at 18732 Division Ave. in Suquamish.
A filmmaker examines the rise of right-wing media through the lens of her father, whose immersion in it radicalized him and rocked the foundation of their family. Filmmaker Jen Senko tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non-political, life-long Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic.
Senko uncovers the forces behind the media that changed him completely: a plan by Roger Ailes under Nixon for a media takeover by the GOP; The Powell Memo urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion, especially the universities, the media and the courts;and under Reagan, the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine.
Please join us for this film that tells the truth behind the right-wing media machine that has divided the country. Discussion will follow, all are welcome.
