"De la Pena expertly personalizes the stories..."
From producer/ provocateur Robert Greenwald (OUTFOXED, UNCOVERED: THE WAR ON IRAQ) comes the latest installment in his politically vehement series; this time, the prolific documentary producer tells the real story of the USA Patriot Act. Melding personal stories with words from the experts, the interviews invariably illuminate the assault that has been launched by the Bush administration against the rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution, principly using 9/11 as an excuse. Writer, director, and producer of the film Nonny De La Pena has been nominated for an Academy Award for her film DEATH ON THE JOB, and she has worked as a muckraking investigative journalist for many prestigious organizations; she brings her nose for the truth to this affecting and informative documentary.
