[VIDEO] Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘America’ Trailer Released, Movie Premieres July 4thPosted: January 27, 2014
Paul Bond writes: The filmmakers behind Dinesh D’Souza‘s upcoming doc have vowed to press on while their star defends himself after his indictment on federal charges that he violated campaign finance laws in 2012. On Sunday, they released a trailer for the movie, America, that is set for release on July 4.
“I want to take this progressive, leftist critique head on”
America is the follow-up to the surprise hit 2016: Obama’s America, which earned $33 million in 2012 and became the second most popular political documentary in history, behind Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, which earned $119 million in 2004.
In America, D’Souza — who wrote and produced the film — makes the claim that 1960s radical leftism is more or less indistinguishable from current mainstream liberalism, a doctrine that he says preaches the United States is the product of “stealing and plunder” from Native Americans, Mexicans and African-American slaves.
“I want to take this progressive, leftist critique head on,” D’Souza says in the trailer. The movie will include re-creations of some of the major events in American history.
America is directed by John Sullivan and co-produced by Gray Frederickson, who won an Oscar for producing The Godfather Part II, and Gerald Molen, who won an Oscar for Schindler’s List. D’Souza and Sullivan co-directed 2016: Obama’s America.
D’Souza was arraigned Friday in New York on charges he made illegal contributions to the campaign of Wendy Long, a friend who ran unsuccessfully for Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate seat in 2012. The crime carries a penalty of up to two years in prison. He’s also charged with making false statements to the Federal Election Commission, a crime punishable by up to five years in prison.
D’Souza was released on a $500,000 bond on Friday. He was asked to surrender his passport and agree to certain travel restrictions…
