Hickenlooper’s DNC Doc

Hickenlooper's DNC Doc

Thompson on Hollywood reports on a new documentary by George Hickenlooper that appears to have a very interesting angle on the Democratic National Convention. Specifically, it’s a documentary being made from the perspective of the Denver mayor:

Shooting started Monday in Denver on Mayor, George Hickenlooper’s documentary feature and pilot. “It’s a real-life Spin City focusing on the day-to-day life of a mayor running a major American city under the incredible pressure of having a star-studded political convention descend upon his domain,” he states. “In this case the Mayor is Denver’s John Hickenlooper (yes, a close relative) who Time Magazine named in 2006 as one of the five most important and progressive mayors in the nation. We just came from an inside meeting with the Governor, Senator, Congressmen. A lot of interesting information about how Colorado, which is hosting the convention, may ironically turn out to be this years big swing state like Florida was in 2000 and Ohio in 2004.”

Expect more film news from the convention, as the Denver Film Festival is hosting screenings and events under the banner of “Cinemocracy.”
