I was first introduced to the film in progress, "The Brainwashing of My Dad" by Zwoof's October 2, 2013 diary Watch this documentary trailer: The Brainwashing of my Dad and later Leslie Salzillo's October 6, 2013 diary The Brainwashing Of My Dad By Limbaugh, Fox & GOP Media. They reported on the Kickstarter campaign of filmmaker Jen Senko to complete a documentary about her dad. "When the filmmaker's parents moved to a place where her father had a long solo commute to work and started listening to Talk Radio to alleviate the boredom, her family saw him change from a non-political Democrat to a radicalized, angry Right-Wing Republican. What happened to Dad?" See how a click on the Internet (no funds required) can help make this film! Check below the orange curlicue for details.
After I read about the documentary, I made a small Kickstarter contribution and have been pleased to see the funds increase to two stretch goals so far. Of course more funds are always needed, but yesterday, since I am a backer, I received an email about an opportunity for the project to win "project of the week" on IndieWire.com. The email explained "The weekly prize is a digital distribution consultation with SnagFilms, and the Project of the Month winner (to be decided later) will receive a creative consultation with the Tribeca Film Institute!"
If you are as interested in this documentary as I am, all you have to do is go to the IndieWire voting site, scroll down to the "Which Project Do You Most Want to See?" box, click on "The Brainwashing of My Dad" and vote. (You do need to have cookies enabled in your browser.) After you vote using your email address, you get a verification email that you also need to click. (I guess that's two clicks to help out!) That's all it takes.
Currently, at 8:36 AM Pacific, this documentary is in second place with 162 votes and 30.98%. I'd like to see it go higher. You have until Monday, October 28, at 11 AM Eastern to vote.
