Citizen Koch Screening

One of the most requested films in recent memory has a special screening at The Little this week. Citizen Koch, a searing exposé on the state of democracy in America and the fracturing of the Republican Party screens on Thursday, June 12th at 6:30 pm. The film investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process.
Immediately following the film, WXXI's Evan Dawson moderates a discussion with David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times and author specializing in economics and tax issues, and Lynda Powell, author and a professor of political science at the University of Rochester and an expert in campaign finance.
This film is free and open to the public and should be well attended, so I encourage you to get there early as seats are on a first come for serve basis. Citizen Koch is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times and both the film and discussion following should be fascinating.
