Film Spotlights Obama Corruption, Secrecy
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the nation’s largest government watchdog organization, and Victory Film Group, announced today that their hard-hitting feature documentary “District of Corruption” will open on Friday, November 9, 2012, in Phoenix, Arizona, at the AMC Desert Ridge 18. “District of Corruption” puts the spotlight on Judicial Watch’s epic battle against government scandal, secrecy and corruption through the last three presidential administrations, with specific emphasis on the current scandals of the Obama administration, including Operation Fast and Furious, illegal alien amnesty, election integrity, crony capitalism and bailouts, and Solyndra (see trailer here).
Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon, the writer/director of “Occupy Unmasked” and the Sarah Palin film “The Undefeated,” and produced in association with Constant Motion Entertainment, the Judicial Watch film is released nationally by Rocky Mountain Pictures, the distributors of the documentary sensation, “Obama 2016.” Judicial Watch is partnering with Movie to Movement, the grassroots group that helped turn out box office busting numbers of movie goers for “Obama 2016.”
The film opened on October 26, 2012, in three states: Florida, Ohio and Texas. It scored the second highest per-screen average at the box office on its opening weekend. The film averaged $7,374 per theater, finishing behind one other debut film, vaunted film festival favorite, “The Loneliest Planet.” In addition to the Phoenix theater, the film also continues to screen at the AMC Lennox Town Center 24 in Columbus, OH.
“‘District of Corruption” is a must-watch for every American citizen concerned about the explosion of corrupt government power in Washington, DC, a problem that will sure to worsen in a second Obama term,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The American people agree on the importance of cleaning up government corruption. “District of Corruption” provides the unvarnished truth about the threat of government corruption, while also providing a reason to hope. This is the right film and the right time.”
The film’s director Stephen K. Bannon said: “This film brings together the nation’s most respected conservative voices to confront the most important issue of our time. The nation’s institutions of government are collapsing under the weight of government power, corruption and scandal. We know that much of what is in this film will shock the senses, but the American people must wake up to the reality of what is happening to their country. And they must rally behind this band of warriors in Washington who truly believe that no one is above the law.”
On Election Day 2012, Judicial Watch and Breitbart.com commissioned a survey of voters with Public Opinion Strategies on the issues of government corruption and secrecy. According to the survey, corruption in the federal government is a serious concern among voters, with 85% saying they are “concerned” and 53% saying they are “very concerned.”
“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.
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.
