Director Stephen K. Bannon on Making “The Undefeated” Sarah Palin Documentary – “I Didn’t Make This For the Palin-istas” (Audio)

Producer, director and writer Stephen Bannon discussed his latest documentary on Sarah Palin “The Undefeated” with me this week. Stephen told me he did not make this movie for the “Palin-istas” but rather for the Americans who formed their opinion of Sarah Palin through state-run media outlets and Saturday Night Live skits. The movie tells the story of how Sarah Palin rose from nowhere to become America’s most popular governor.

Stephen also announced during the interview that the movie would play in St. Louis this summer.
This was a great interview.

The film will launch in markets such as Dallas, Denver, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis, and Kansas City starting on July 15. n addition to the cities in which the movie is expected to launch, the public also will be encouraged to vote on future theatre locations that may screen The Undefeated.

    Make it available in “torrents” for free, if you want the Dem base to see it.

    Call it “Pirated!” in the name, for greater effect.

    Sad but true.

    I have not been to a theater in years, but i will go to this movie.

    She’s as electable as she is intelligent.

  • ert

    Free downloads. That’s the way.

    The Palin loyalists aren’t going to like this though. As far as cults goes, it seems there’s a core of cultist bullies who think they’re promoting Sarah, without realizing their outreach is coming off nearly as bad as the Ron Paul zombies.

    I see trolls have already hit this thread. Nothing like a Palin thread to bring out trolls and their lame comments.

    This film is getting rave reviews all over the place. I can’t wait to see it!

  • Just_Saying

    I’m looking forward to seeing the movie, and then buying the DVD!

  • I had the opportunity to see the directors cut version and speak to Steve Bannon on Wednesday.

    I went in skeptical that it would just be a puff piece. I came out wanting to refight the battles of 2008. The movie is great. It may seem a little slow at first, but at the end of two hours you are ready for much more.

    I hope it becomes available for wide distribution either through downloads or DVD as soon as possible. It really needs to be distributed to those who are not Palin fans so they can understand the enormity of the wrong that was done to her by the left, while at the same time become aware of her amazing accomplishments in her brief political career up to 2008.

    Great job, Steve!

    When first saw her speak at the GOP Convention in 2008 I posted a comment that Sarah is the embodiment of feminism I have been waiting for, for 40 years.

    She is in some ways too good for America – at least too good for the America of Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Hollywood, Couric and the entire MSM and of course their darlings the Clintons and Obama.,

    I’d like to see this movie play in theaters all across the fruited plain. However, ss we’ve seen, it’s well established that the mere mention of Sarah’s name sends Leftists in apoplectic fits of uncontrollable rage. I’m not sure many venues in America have sufficient police presence to handle the rage that is likely erupt outside theaters that elect show this movie.

    Expect theaters to be set on fire while you evil Republicans are inside watching this movie and then being beaten by enraged Leftists as you emerge from the burning building.

    Word of caution: If you’re going to see this movie, wear fire retardant clothing and pack some personal protection just to be on the safe side.

  • Eubulides

    Pardon me, but this is my trolling ground. Please go elsewhere.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    So you admit you’re a Troll. Interesting…

  • Eubulides

    Subtlety is not my strong suit, but it’s not an insurmountable hindrance. In fact, being open and honest about it makes the reactions all the more rewarding.

    Saw the undefeated in a 68 seat screening room in NY this wk & saw a fearless executive in action. Getting things done for Sarah is more important than playing politics. Interesting was her mayorship in Wasilla were she is pure substance, creating infrastructure, roads, sewers the stuff that attracts the business…it’s all about incentives, not taxing or regulating. She’ all about implementing her conservative commonsense ideas which are totally applicable on a macro level, as well…like getting our national economy back on track. Also interesting, is the fact that the jurisdictional authority of Alaska’s governorship is great, greater than the more populace CA, this made Sara very powerful as the CEO of Alaska who was very willing to use her veto pen & be held accountable, a novel idea, over 25,000 state employees. She takes on the entrenched back-room big boys of Alaska & comes off as a real crusader against corruption not only in her own party but also among the domineering oil kings who she forced to develop oil they were sitting on. Bannon, left me a bit confused about why Sara was so unpopular in her state among both parties after she returned from the McCain defeat, was it bc/ she lost? He brings up all the ethics complaints that led to her resigning the governorship, but doesn’t emphasize her selfless commitment campaigning to turn around the House & repub governorships in 2010…she didn’t just sit on her laurels after she resigned. The movie shows how important energy is to Alaska’s lifeline by literally showing the bigness of it all…big pipes, pig machinery, massive land masses for development, rich oil men…all this is good for showing Palin as a force to be reckoned w/ on the national level, as one who will indeed drill baby drill & face down a putsy, girly Obama. The best part of the movie is when Sara is talking…at the 2008 convention, in Wisconsin, a bit during her governorship…wish there was more of that…she just has the it factor…pure charisma. Bannon is great, articulate spokesman for the film. The film is good ammunition to take back the narrative from the MSM & show us a smart, hard working, fearless, gutsy, patriotic, Mr. Smith goes to Washington type of LEADER that is heads above all the other candidates running for 2012. She’s Obama’s antithesis & can win.

  • Bill589

    Obama ain’t seen nothing yet. This is not 2008. Palin, besides being much wiser, is now free of the RINO’s chains, muzzles, and policies.

    In reality, when opponents finally figure out that this commoner, hick, woman is brilliant, the next thing they usually figure out is that it is too late. And she gets associated with fearless apex predators a lot.

    This is a whole new battle of a much higher order.
    It won’t be pretty, but the good side wins.

  • This is the movie to end all lame stream media memes about Palin. It’s the nuke that wipes out 3 years of nonsense perpetrated against her.
