HATING BREITBART – Feature-length Documentary
Captures the Final Days of Controversial New Media Pioneer, Andrew Breitbart;
Releases in Theaters October 12, 2012
Hating Breitbart, a feature-length documentary that takes an in-depth look at the final days of controversial New Media pioneer, Andrew Breitbart, who, before his untimely death earlier this year, became a conservative icon and one of the nation’s most influential political commentators; is set to hit theaters on October 12, 2012. Hating Breitbart will debut in exclusive engagements in Los Angeles, St. Louis, Dallas and Washington, D.C., with scheduled expansion to cities across the country in subsequent weeks.
Written and directed by award-winning independent filmmaker and multi-media producer, Andrew Marcus; Hating Breitbart is an up-close expose into the last two-years of Breitbart’s life and is the story of the man who achieved national attention by upending the traditional press and repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy.
“Andrew Breitbart was able to engage and galvanize the conservative base of Americans, like few others in our time,” says Marcus. “Even before his untimely death earlier this year, Andrew had in many ways, already achieved iconic status as a fearless activist and champion of conservative values. Passionately loved by many and hated vehemently by others, Andrew was a true enigma – a champion of the people and a larger-than-life-personality, who declared war on the mainstream media and on the institutional left. Hating Breitbart will show you how and why he did it and his quest to change the landscape of American culture.”
Production on Hating Breitbart took place over the span of 30 months in more than 15 cities across the United States. Marcus enjoyed exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to Breitbart during his various high-profile and often contentious battles with the media – from the release of the explosive ACORN videos through the Anthony Weiner scandal.
Hating Breitbart is a memorial to American patriot Andrew Breitbart.
Coming soon to theaters.
