Found Theatre to Screen New Documentary THE BRAINWASHING OF MY DAD
The Found Theatre of Long Beach is pleased to screen the new documentary, "The Brainwashing Of My Dad," on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 24, at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for all ages; no reservations are required. Refreshments are available.
In the film produced by Matthew Modine and Adam Rackoff, filmmaker Jen Senko explores how her WWII veteran and Kennedy Democrat father was transformed into a Fox News fanatic, suddenly and inexplicably railing against minorities, homosexuals, poor people and Democrats. Using her dad as an example, Senko pulls back the curtain to expose the tools and tricks of the wizards behind the right-wing media revolution. In discovering what happened to him, Senko reveals the all-too-chilling bigger picture of what's happening behind the scenes to influence our national discourse.
