Following the success of “2016: Obama’s America,” another anti-Barack Obama film will soon be released. Produced by Citizens United, “The Hope And the Change” documents the worsening situation of 40 Americans who voted for Obama in 2008.
The film will premiere at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
David Bossie, the group’s president, said Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 911” served as an inspiration.
“Michael Moore made a film attacking George Bush, and he didn’t let the facts get in the way of a good storyline,” said Bossie. “What we did was want to be able to do the same thing. That’s what the Citizens United case emanated from. .. And that’s why in 2008 I went to the United States Supreme Court to fight for my right, and it took me many years. And in 2010 we finally won our victory.”
In September, “The Hope And the Change,” will be in select theaters across the United States, and it might air on a cable channel regularly until Election Day.
“This is the first election cycle that we are now legally able to make a political documentary and show it and its ads on television,” Bossie said. “And we’re really excited about that.”
