The Brainwashing of My Dad

Saturday 10:00AM FFR

90 min.,  2016

Filmmaker: Jen Senko


As filmmaker, Jen Senko, tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non political, life-long US Democrat to an angry right-wing fanatic, she uncovers the forces behind the media that changed him completely. Her father is part of a much broader demographic. Through interviews with media luminaries, cognitive linguists, grassroots activists such as Noam Chomsky, George Lakoff and others, the film unravels the plan to shift the US to the right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation. This documentary will shine a light on how it happened and continues to happen.
