Congratulations to our clients’ filmmakers Joseph Mealey and Michael Paradies Shoob whose film, Bush’s Brain, premiered at a special screening in Los Angeles at the American Cinematheque on August 12. The film is about Karl Rove, the brains behind the success of George Bush, who has engaged in questionable tactics in the pursuit of electoral victory.

The documentary opens in theatres across the nation in late August and early September. In Los Angeles it will open in four theaters including the Laemmle Sunset 5 on September 3. It opens in New York on August 27, three days before the start of the Republican convention. This is likely to be a controversial film, a behind-the-scenes look at the political guru that has guided George Bush in his career.
