by Joseph Mealey and Michael Shoob
Introduced by Mike Niman, Assistant Professor of Communication, Buffalo State College
This screening is also part of the Visions and Decisions Festival.

Tonight’s dual screening begins with a 34 minute version of the film HIJACKING CATASTROPHE, a political documentary distributed by the Media Education Foundation that examines how a radical fringe of the Republican Party has used the trauma of the 9/11 terror attacks to advance a pre-existing agenda to radically transform American foreign policy while rolling back civil liberties and social programs at home.

The feature presentation, BUSH’S BRAIN, introduces the country to Karl Rove, the most powerful political figure America has had but known so little about, the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain of today’s Presidential politics. He is a man who has almost single-handedly shaped the policies of our nation: a brilliant tactician, ruthless opponent, savvy policy maker, and one of the greatest political minds in the history of the Republic. The film is based on the best-selling book BUSH’S BRAIN (Wiley, 2003) by journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater.
