In a stunning show of discontent for the state of the union, the latest film project from filmmakers William Lewis and Gary Franchi is stirring up support from coast to coast. Only 8 days after the official release, 39 cities have registered locations to host film screenings of “Don’t Tread On Me: Rise of the Republic” on the National Simul-Screening day, June 26th.
In an interview with writer/producer Franchi, he stated, “It reminds me when I was working with Aaron Russo and the support his film received when it was released.”
Aaron Russo was the Hollywood producer whose final film, “America: Freedom to Fascism” examined the Federal Reserve, the income tax and the growing police state in America. Russo passed away due to cancer in August of 2007.
Writer/Director Lewis added candidly, “people are opening up their homes, renting theaters, and securing rooms in libraries and halls all over the country.”
Franchi chimed in, “and that’s just the publicly listed screenings, over 60 private screening locations have registered, as well!”
When asked why the film is receiving such attention, Lewis remarked, “The people have had enough. They are looking for solutions and we give the solutions in this film.”
When pressed about specifics, veteran documentarian Lewis stated, “The last amendment of the Bill of Rights lays out one part of the plan and the 2nd Amendment the other. We present, for the first time on film, key state resolutions working their way through various state houses that the viewer will be educated on and we hope will support, but that is just the beginning.”
