The filmmakers who rattled viewers with The Devil Came on Horseback and The Trials of Daniel Hunt return to explore outspoken author Naomi Wolf's controversial claim that America has begun a frightening descent into dictatorship with this documentary that takes its title from the incendiary novel of the same name.
Is American democracy, as we know it under attack? By examining the chilling parallels between the current state of our nation and the ascent of dictators and fascism in other once-free societies, Wolf urges viewers to open their eyes to the horrors that could lie ahead.
From the increased use of paramilitary groups to the construction of secret prisons and the targeted suspension of the rule of law, the warning signs are all there for people to wake up and finally take notice.
