Coming to PBS’ America ReFramed on the WORLD Channel tomorrow, Tuesday, April 1: TOWN HALL
Sierra Pettengill and Jamila Wignot’s portrait of Tea Party activists made its debut at Seattle last year. It went on to screen at DOC NYC, Woodstock, Camden, and Philadelphia, among others.
I previously wrote about the film for the DOC NYC program, saying:
An unexpected consequence of the 2008 presidential election, the Tea Party emerged as an ostensibly grassroots conservative political movement focused on limiting government and a political force with which to be reckoned, as demonstrated by the midterm elections. With restraint and candor, TOWN HALL takes an impartial but pointed look at two impassioned Pennsylvania Tea Party activists in the lead-up to the 2012 election, determined to restore their version of a theoretically “lost” America, but faced with complicated, if not contradictory, decisions.
