Koch Brothers Exposed
Just in time for the November 2012 General Election, the Reel and Meal at the New Deal Cafe
partners with the 2012 Utopia Film Festival on Monday, October 15, for the screening of
Koch Brothers Exposed.
KBE is a 2012 political documentary, compiled by Robert Greenwald, from a viral video campaign
produced by Brave New Films, about the political activities and influence of the Koch brothers.
The billionaire brothers bankroll a vast network of organizations that work to undermine the
interests of the 99% on issues ranging from Social Security to the environment to civil rights.
The film is a hard-hitting investigation of the 1% at its very worst – uncovering the Kochs’ corruption
– and pointing the way to how Americans can reclaim their democracy.
Doug Clopp is the Deputy Director of Programs for Common Cause, a DC-based
nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization with nearly 400,000 members, founded
as a vehicle for citizens to make their voices heard in the political process and to hold
their elected leaders accountable.
Stephen Shaff is a social enterprise practitioner, consultant and social activist with
more than 20 years of experience in combining his professional expertise with community,
political and social advocacy. Stephen served as Vice-Chair Emeritus of the National Advisory
Board of Progressive Democrats of America.
