Two New Documentaries Spotlighting Wisconsin Screening in Madison to Benefit CMD

The Center for Media and Democracy invites you to join us for a terrific evening Wednesday, October 24th, at Madison's Barrymore Theatre starting at 7pm. We are screening two recently released documentaries that put the spotlight on Wisconsin.

"United States of ALEC"

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is "a scheme to remake America one statehouse at a time," says narrator Bill Moyers. "United States of ALEC" is a documentary collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center. This film is the extended version of the report which first aired on public broadcasting stations nationwide featuring the investigative work of the Center for Media and Democracy and cheeseheads Lisa Graves, Mark Pocan, John Nichols, Mary Bottari, Joel Rogers, Julie Underwood and more.

Movie to be followed by question and answer session Graves, Nichols and Pocan.

"As Goes Janesville"

The documentary by 371 Productions, "As Goes Janesville" catapults viewers to the front lines of America's debate over the future of our middle class -- a debate that has become a pitched battle over unions in the normally tranquil state of Wisconsin. Producer Brad Lichtenstein will be at the Barrymore to introduce his film and answer questions. 

Tickets: $8.00 Advance/$10.00 Day Of Show

Advance Tickets Available On-Line and by Phone (608) 241-8633, Mon.-Fri. 12-5 p.m., with a $1.00 Convenience Charge.

The double feature supports the investigative work of the non-profit, Madison-based Center for Media and Democracy, and its award-winning "ALEC Exposed" project.

We hope to see you there!
