AMERICA AND ME

This very special event will be hosted by Mark Davis (former Dateline Presenter and Four Corners correspondent extraordinaire), who will lead an audience Q&A featuring director David Bradbury immediately after the screening.

Activist and twice Oscar-nominated filmmaker David Bradbury (The Crater) returns with his revealing new documentary.

America was once considered Great. America and Me chronicles the country 40 years after Ronald Reagan championed the economic theories of Milton Friedman and his infamous Chicago Boys.

Featuring interviews with veterans of America’s failed war, the homeless, nuns and more together with telling moments from his earlier films shot on the edge of the American Colossus, this film reveals Bradbury’s critique of the American penchant for Empire.
