Our non-partisan film is meant for the many citizens we’ve met coast-to-coast who deeply love their country but say they don’t truly feel represented — people too busy making a living or raising their families to watch what goes on in our nation’s capitol. People who read headlines, watch the blizzard of political TV ads, and suspect something is not right . . . but who don’t know exactly where the problem is or whether it can be fixed. How can it be that year after year, despite clear signs of some serious dangers inherent with our national farm (food) and energy policies, that Congress continues to direct the lion’s share of subsidies to older technologies that involve serious, long-term impacts? We have attempted to provide a non-partisan look at the root of this dysfunction — business-as-usual campaign finance in Washington D.C. where high-stake donors and lobbyists have daily access to powerful members of Congress caught in a desperate campaign treadmill. I hope that our film also helps viewers see that this seemingly overwhelming problem can be fixed when we find a new way of electing our leaders. We looked at one of many possible solutions to the problem that would be feasible if the political will were present.
