Please join us for a free screening & discussion of Better This World, the 2008 Republican National Convention documentary at the independent coffee shop The Nicollet (@ Franklin & Nicollet) Sept 14th, 8:30 PM. Musicians will be performing live jazz beforehand.
Two boyhood friends from Midland, Texas – David McKay and Bradley Crowder – fall under the sway of a charismatic revolutionary ten years their senior. At the volatile 2008 Republican Convention the "Texas Two" cross a line that radically changes their lives. The result: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges and a high stakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant. A dramatic story of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal, BETTER THIS WORLD goes to the heart of the War on Terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America.
Tell yr friends & family: The film airs on PBS stations, Tuesday, September 6, 2011. TPT 2.1 showtimes: 9PM Sept 6th. 3AM Sept 7th. 10PM Sept 11th. 4AM Sept 12th.
