KOCH BROTHERS EXPOSED investigates, exposes, and connects the dots about what happens when billionaires try to buy up democracy. Filmmaker Robert Greenwald, who gave us Rethink Afghanistan and WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price, has once again created a gripping film that shines a light on wrong-doing, political lobbying, and money-fueled influence in America. The film uncovers tactics used by the Koch brothers to sway political power in their favor. With appearances by Barnie Sanders, Van Jones, Bill McKibben, Jim Hightower, Katrina vanden Heuvel, John Nichols and others, the film exposes the dangers of unchecked influence concentrated in the hands of the few. This includes their efforts to suppress voter rights, re-segregate public schools, weaken EPA regulation, privatize Social Security, capture politicians, mold the news, and even influence what is taught and by whom in our universities. This film should be a wake-up call for people across the political spectrum to take action to halt the selling off of our democracy.
"Every person in this country who cares about democracy
should care about this work." – Ed Schultz
