Sarah Palin New Documentary Seeks $30,000 on Crowd Funding Site
In his quest to unveil the “real” Sarah Palin, documentarian Nick Broomfield aims to debut his latest project, Sarah Palin: You Betcha!, at the Toronto International Film Festival with expected distribution to follow in the fall.
In an effort to raise money for the documentary’s upcoming North American release campaign, Broomfield has placed the film on the crowd funding site Kickstarter, seeking $30,000.
“This film was made for the American people and Kickstarter now offers them a chance to be a part of the distribution process to directly support the documentary’s national roll-out,” he said. “We need help getting this out so voters gain a true understanding of the person who is asking for their political support.”
The film sees Broomfield as he speaks with school friends, family and Republican colleagues of the former governor of Alaska, all while battling the icy snows of a Wasilla winter. The evangelical community, where Palin attended high school and eventually became mayor, features 76 churches with a population of just 6 thousand and is the Crystal meth capital of the state.
Palin has yet to confirm whether or not she intends to run for the Presidency, but recently announced that she would be embarking on a second leg of her One Nation bus tour.
Broomfield’s previous films include Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer, Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam and Kurt & Courtney. Joan Churchill co-directs, while the project is produced by Marc Hoeferlin.
