The Brainwashing of My Dad

Filmmaker Jen Senko tries to make sense of her father's "brainwashing" by today's right-wing political movement. How did he go from a John F. Kennedy backer in the 1960s to a Rush Limbaugh-loving "ditto-head" 50 years later? By interviewing media luminaries, cognitive linguists and grassroots activists such as Noam Chomsky, Steve Rendell, Jeff Cohen, Eric Boehlert, George Lakoff, Claire Conner and others, this seriocomic documentary reveals our country's shift toward conservativism in the last 30 years—largely thanks to corporate media manipulation. 90 minutes Unrated.
