"Caucus" Film Showing and Discussion
Start Date: 2/12/2014Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 2/12/2014

Event Description:
Join us for a viewing of the documentary film Caucus followed by a discussion with the filmmaker AJ Schnack and moderator, Political Director James Pindell as part of the Institute’s Speaker Series.

The film Caucus looks at the small successes and embarrassing public gaffes that are all part of running for political office, no less so when you are one of eight candidates struggling to gain a foothold and find your voice in the first major political contest of the season.

Over the course of 10 months, filmmaker AJ Schnack traveled with an extraordinary cast of political figures - from Senators, Governors and Representatives to former Pizza Magnates - as they sought to win Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucus, catapult to the Republican nomination and take on U.S. President Barack Obama.

Schnack and his team tracked the candidates through state fairs and town hall meetings, as each tried to rise to the top of the Republican field. But when an ordinary day can be upended by a confrontational heckler, an unexpected questioner or a spouse who goes off-message, the difficulty and challenges of a presidential bid are made clear. As candidates seek to avail themselves to old fashioned retail politics, anything can happen. Caucus is the story of the human beings behind the political caricatures and one unexpected underdog story.
