It is no surprise that the topic of American civil liberties usually brings some heated discussions to the fore front. HopeDance films bring you acclaimed director Aaron Russo, winner of three Golden Globes and several Academy Awards nominations, who has taken time off his other jobs—everything from running for governor of Nevada to managing celebrities such as Bette Midler and Jefferson Airplane—in order to put his time and effort into bringing you his latest project, America: Freedom to Fascism. The film explores the erosion of civil liberties occurring in America, beginning with the establishment of the Federal Reserve System.
Russo’s film elaborates on the subject matter by delving into topics such as money creation, federal income tax and the proposed Real ID Act, which will take effect May, 2008. The identity card will be a federally issued ID which will be used to travel on an airplane, open a bank account or collect Social Security payments. The card will act as a national identity card, and the Department of Homeland Security will then determine whether or not state driver’s licenses meet federal ID standards.
Russo seeks to bring you this information and establish the historicity and ties of government intervention into America’s privacy by showing you the cold hard facts. Previews have been receiving standing ovations, and the information you will receive from the film is mind boggling. Don’t miss this opportunity to get in touch with the privilege to know your rights and freedoms. For more information, view the trailer. Visit the HopeDance website to buy tickets or view showtimes.
