Honest Man: The Life of R. Budd Dwyer

With producer Matt Levie in attendance!

Robert "Budd" Dwyer was a loving husband, devoted father, and respected civil servant of the state of Pennsylvania. On January 22, 1987, he shot himself on television.

"Honest Man," an independently produced feature-length documentary four years in the making, explores the bribery scandal that led an honest, hard-working man to take his own life. The film features exclusive new interviews with Dwyer's family, friends, and colleagues, including a candid, heartfelt interview with Dwyer's widow - her last before her death in 2009 - and a rare, revealing interview with William Smith, the man whose testimony convicted Dwyer. This portrait of a man swept up in the turbulent and cutthroat political world of the 1980s will undoubtedly raise important questions about Dwyer's presumed guilt.

Produced and directed by James Dirschberger of Eighty-Four Films (which also produced the animated short Skinner's Hell Dream), "Honest Man" features a soundtrack by Sacramento's Chris Woodhouse. Sacramento artist Skinner also designed a poster for "Honest Man," which was available for sale and all proceeds were contributed to the R. Budd Dwyer Scholarship Fund.
