Working Films, a Wilmington nonprofit that connects filmmakers with activists, will host a free film screening of the documentary “Citizen Koch” 4 p.m. on June 30 at The Full Frame Theater.
Filmmakers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal highlight the Kochs’ influence on politics in Wisconsin, following the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. They claim the ruling has made it easier for interest groups to buy elections, according to the film’s website.
”The film talks about how the Kochs bought the political process, and we see similarities between that and what Art Pope has done with donations to politicians in North Carolina,” said Andy Myers, the campaign coordinator for Working Films.
Working Films is not a political organization, he said, but it does connect groups with similar messages. In light of the Moral Monday demonstrations, he continued, Working Films sees the screenings as a way to engage “even more people.”
