Are you ready to be inspired? Do you feel we need to get money out of politics? Dont miss the Wyoming premiere of the inspiring new documentary film CHARLIE VS GOLIATH (www.charlievsgoliath.com), which is going to be screening at the Lincoln Movie Theater in downtown Cheyenne on Thursday, Dec. 7 at 7pm. The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q and A with Cheyenne native and former US Senate Candidate Charlie Hardy, who will be joined by Ken Chestek, the Chair of WYOMING PROMISE, the organization leading the charge against money in politics in the state of Wyoming.
Known as the Bernie Sanders of Wyoming, Charlie served as a Catholic priest and spent 8 years living in a cardboard shack in Venezuela before returning to his home state to run for the US Senate while taking a stand against money in politics. Powerful and passionate, CHARLIE VS GOLIATH has screened in film festivals across the United States, from Hollywood's Chinese Theater to the Buffalo International Film Festival. Here's what people are saying about it:
"I've seen thousands of documentaries and this is the best documentary I've ever seen."
- Chantal Westerman, former Hollywood correspondent, ABCs Good Morning America
"A panacea for all of us suffering from campaign fatigue."
- Missoula Independent
"Incredibly moving and powerful."
- Scott Burton, KDPI (Sun Valley, Idaho)
Ken Chestek is a lawyer, a former candidate for the Wyoming legislature and currently an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Wyoming College of Law. WYOMING PROMISE's mission is to pass a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would overturn Citizens United vs. FEC through a statewide ballot initiative. The organization believes that campaign finance reform is the only way we the people - not corporations, not special interests, not unions - can bring back democracy and govern ourselves.
