"Political Advertisement 2000" features ads from the 1950s to the present, including the 2000 campaign. As filmmakers Antonio Muntadas and Marshall Reese trace the development of the TV spot, what emerges is the political strategy and manipulative marketing techniques of the American televisual campaign process. "Political Advertisement 2000" includes many rare spots, some never before seen. Edited without commentary, the ads showcase an endless stream of candidates, from Eisenhower to Al Gore, who are sold like commercial products.
The film will be followed by an open discussion led by Elliot Margolies, Executive Producer at the Community Media Center in Palo Alto.
$5-10 suggested donation; sponsored by World Centric, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, and Peace Umbrella of Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto.
