As we reported earlier, The End of America is being made into a documentary film. MoveOn.org is offer you (yes you!) a chance to be in it! MoveOn.org sent around the following invitation to an open filming event in NYC on Wednesday, May 28th. Please read below for details.
Would you like to be in the audience for the filming of the documentary version of Naomi Wolf’s The End of America?
Next week, New York City members have a special opportunity: instead of seeing a film, to actually be IN the film version of Naomi Wolf’s best selling book and smash lecture tour, The End of America.
The End of America is about the 10 steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism. It’s not a “lefty” tome, but rather a historical look at trends in troubled democracies that are being repeated in our country today. Ms. Wolf gives a much needed history lesson and constitutional refresher. Most importantly, she puts the recent gradual loss of civil liberties in the U.S. in a historical context. The average American might not be alarmed at AT&T selling our private information to the administration, but when this action is seen in a larger series of erosions and events, a pattern emerges with unfortunate consequences that become disturbingly clear.
The End of America has been a word of mouth phenomenon, spending an incredible 7 months on the NY Times Best seller listâ€”and Naomi’s dynamic lecture has captured audiences all around the globe. The filmmakers (Academy Award nominated documentary film makers Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern) hope that the film version will reach even more people with this important information.
The End of America filming will document Naomi Wolf’s lecture series in one special night in NYC. You won’t want to miss this: Ms. Wolf is a truly captivating speaker. She takes the idea of “civil liberties” out of the realm of something we are doing to scary terrorists and “enemy combatants” and actually brings the reader/viewer to feel that rights like Habeaus Corpus/due process of law are not only worth protecting, but vital to the USA as we know it.
But in order to make the film shoot a success, they need your help.
