Summer Film Series: The Brainwashing of My Dad

July 30, 2017 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

The Neighbors, Justice, and Peace Committees of the Mission Board are teaming up to sponsor our fifth annual Summer Film Series. Films will be shown after our Summer worship service, along with a light potluck lunch in the Social Hall.

The Brainwashing of My Dad is a documentary film directed by Jen Senko about the transformation of her father, Frank who was originally a “nonpolitical Kennedy Democrat”, but changed into a political Republican since the 1980s. On her father’s three hour or more commute to his place of employment, he listened to talk radio about Republican issues. Senko believes that the talk shows started the change in her father’s personality. The documentary includes Matthew Modine as the narrator and also features Noam Chomsky and Jeff Cohen. British doctor Kathleen Taylor examines how the media changed Frank’s mind, and the minds of people that are similar to him.
