MOVEON: THE MOVIE is a feature-length documentary focusing on the revolutionary history of the biggest progressive grass-roots movement seen in the United States since the 1960s.
Born out of a single email, MoveOn.org has become one of the most powerful progressive players in American politics. With no central office and a small staff working from their homes, MoveOn.org grew to an organization with over 5 million members.
MOVEON: THE MOVIE was created from years of intimate behind-the-scenes footage with MoveOn staff & members, members’ home movies, archival footage, and interviews with political figures and celebrities both in support and opposition to the group. Whether you love MoveOn, hate MoveOn, or have merely heard of their successes and controversies, you’ll be riveted by the untold story of a small band of citizens that changed American politics forever.
Featured in the film are MoveOn.org execs Wes Boyd, Joan Blades, Eli Pariser, Zack Exley and Laura Dawn, plus John Kerry, Al Gore, Joe Lieberman, Henry Waxman, Thelma Drake, Moby, Michael Stipe, Byron York, Arianna Huffington, and many others.
