A new generation of muckrakers has moved documentary films into the forefront of investigative journalism. Michael Moore and Robert Greenwald lead the field, but a regiment of lesser known filmmakers have documentaries in release, too.
One of the most provocative new films is John Hankey’s JFKII: The Bush Connection. It alleges that ABC News anchor Peter Jennings is “a liar,” the late Averall Harriman, the Rockefeller brothers, and Prescott Bush, grandfather of the President, were “Nazis,” and that George H.W. Bush, the 41st president, was a CIA supervisor in 1963 and linked to the men who assassinated President John Kennedy.JFKII: The Bush Connection will be screened on Wednesday, July 6, at 10:30 p.m. at 7 Dudley Cinema, Sponto Gallery, 7 Dudley Avenue, in Venice. The screening is free.
