The Annapolis Film Festival has announced that they will host the World Premiere of Crashing the Party, directed by David Sigal.
This is a behind-the-curtains look at the “dead in the water” Democratic Party leading up to the election of Bill Clinton in 1992. Watch how the President and the Party were nudged to the political center making them viable again for many years with the repercussions of that time still rippling in this Presidential Election year. This is a fascinating perspective on what’s happening in our political landscape today and the current health of both parties.
It will screen with Partyline, directed by Alan Magee. A cheeky musical surrender to the universally-recognized fact of total government surveillance. St. Anne’s Parish House, Saturday, April 2, 2:15 pm.
