(Presseportal openBroadcast) - A documentary film is intended to be much more like a piece of journalism than a piece of entertainment or expressive art. There is typically a voice-over narrative going on throughout a documentary film with the narrator describing what’s being seen in a businesslike way without any dramatic reading.
Documentary films are often made to more deeply explore a current events or history subject that has remained shrouded in mystery, been controversial, or in the opinion of the film maker misunderstood or underexposed. Documentaries have also been made simply to record an event of personal interest to the film maker.
American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter disenfranchisement witnessed in both elections while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who not only took an active role in investigating these election debacles but also found herself in the middle of one after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9–11 terrorist attacks. Some call Cynthia McKinney a civil rights leader among the ranks of Shirley Chisholm and Malcolm X. Others call her a conspiracy theorist. USA Blackout gains unprecedented access to one of the most controversial and outspoken politicians in America and examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence political dissent.
American Blackout is a meticulously researched and extremely realistic drama exploring the effects of a devastating cyber-attack on America’s national electricity grid. When America suffers a catastrophic nationwide power failure, members of the public record what they can on cameras and phones. As the country descends into anarchy, a cast of ordinary characters struggle to feed and protect themselves and their families. This is the story of America’s ten days without electricity, told by those kept filming to the end.
The producer pitched the movie as the story of a national power failure in the United States caused by a cyberattack — told in real time, by those who kept filming on cameras and phones. You’ll learn what it means to be absolutely powerless. Gritty, visceral and totally immersive, see what it might take to survive from day one, and who would be left standing when the lights come back on.
If you missed the premier of the wildly inane and ridiculously under-researched tale “American Blackout” that aired Sunday evening, you are among the fortunate ones who were spared a few hours of nauseating distraction.
