UNCONSTITUTIONAL: THE WAR ON OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES is a hour-long documentary from Robert Greenwald – one of the most prolific and progressive producers in Hollywood – in conjunction with the ACLU. This new film, written, directed and produced by Nonny de la Peña, details the shocking way that the civil liberties of American citizens and immigrants alike have been infringed upon, curtailed and rolled back since 9/11 and the USA Patriot Act.
Autumn of 2001 brought us assaults against Americans’ comfort zone on many fronts. We learned that we could fall victim to attacks on US soil, and we learned that those guarantees provided to us in the Constitution were equally vulnerable.
UNCONSTITUTIONAL provides the facts and stories that illuminate administration lies, wrongheaded policies and the real victims of these actions – the American people.
Here, you’ll get the real story behind the USA PATRIOT Act and other administration policies and the gut wrenching stories behind those affected – from law abiding sales clerks to United States Olympians unable to travel. It’ll remind you of what America used to stand for and what it seems we’re falling for now. In short, this film will affirm why you’re angry and give you a tool to help others join your ranks.
