Citizens United, an organization dedicated to restoring our government to citizens’ control, will be releasing a new film, Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman” on Wednesday, September 22nd, in Washington, DC.
The film, with an all-female cast, is the first to tell the story of the awakening of a new generation of women that are at the forefront of today’s re-born conservative movement.
“We are very excited about “Fire from the Heartland” and the chance to have this extraordinary cast tell the story of women’s role in the leadership of the conservative movement,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, and the film’s Producer.
I had the opportunity to attend a private screening of the movie at the Citizens United headquarters in Washington DC when I was there for BlogCon, last weekend.
Here is the trailer:
Citizens United filmmaker, Steve Bannon introduced the film to a handful of female bloggers, and we were asked our opinions about the film when it was through.
I gave it two thumbs up.
Women all across America have been spurred into action by the gross overreach, overspending and power grabs of big government Statists in Washington. Even those who are barely paying attention, can sense that something is very, very wrong, and women all across America are standing athwart history, and yelling, STOP!
This film tells that story.
The first-ever film to tell the entire story of the conservative woman in her own words, “Fire from the Heartland” is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis. With role models such as Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, and Phyllis Schlafly as inspiration, these women are the unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.
Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today’s “Mama Grizzlies,” this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.
The cast of women interviewed range from professional pundits to women who had no idea two years ago that they would soon become nationally renowned tea party leaders.
Activists, politicians and commentators such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann share their emotional stories of hardship and triumph in their fight for freedom. These women leaders are fanning the flames of liberty across the nation.
Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by David N. Bossie, the team that made the critically acclaimed film “Generation Zero” that focused on the financial meltdown and the rise of the Tea Party, “Fire from the Heartland” is a must-see for every citizen concerned with the direction of our country and will stir a fire in the hearts of all Americans.
One question I had for Steve Bannon, was: How much of the women’s words were scripted?….Because their words were presented in a seamless stream – one after another – forming one joint statement. And because they shared the same values and same vision, the end result looked almost contrived. It wasn’t. The only thing that was pre-planned were the white tops they wore for their interviews.
I strongly recommend that you seek out a screening in your area of this excellent film because its gorgeous visuals are best suited to the big screen.
If that’s not possible, it’s also available on DVD.
