Wisconsin features in Sundance entrant

A documentary that takes a look at the historic 2011 protests against Governor Scott Walker had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, which wraps up this weekend in Park City, Utah.

Titled Citizen Koch, after the billionaire brothers who took an interest in the goings-on here, the film deals with the intersection of money, power and democracy.

“This is a story about working class white Americans who are lifelong Republicans, who are at a crossroads,” said filmmaker Carl Deal, who collaborated with Tia Lessin on the project. “All people who are dealing with the fallout, of the influence wielded by folks like the Koch brothers in their state.”
