"Of By For"

Tweetable Logline: 

Of By For uncovers the powerful interests that corrode our political system and divide the people.

Elevator Pitch:

Uncovering the powerful interests that corrode our political system and divide the people, Of ByFor finds that hope for real change still exists – we've just been looking in all the wrong places. Featuring Ron Paul, Dan Rather, Newt Gingrich, Al Sharpton, Ralph Nader, Jack Abramoff and a host of others, the film is a surprisingly honest and incisive exposition of our broken system.

About the Production:

"This began as a simple project—a few friends and a couple of cameras on a trip across Route 66. Disillusioned with the Bush administration and the broken promises of Obama’s presidency, I was eager to hear what my fellow citizens thought about our political system. I never imagined that it would evolve and grow as it did, much less take me on such a profound, personal journey.

"'Of By For' is not so much about politics as it is human nature. It is about the many interests that turn well intentioned people into masters of a very dangerous game." -- Christopher Kay
