About this course:

Molly Ivins was a superstar newspaper columnist who wrote about Texas and national politics with an eagle eye and a mordant sense of humor. She understood the depth of the relationship between capitalism and representative democracy and wrote insightfully about how politicians shaped their images to play to constituencies. Even the most scathingly funny and wild Ivins columns were undergirded by a sense of moral outrage that so many elected representatives were lining their own pockets or the pockets of donors rather than serving the people who voted for them. Director and producer Janet Engel and her team spent years researching and collecting massive amounts of material that served as the underpinnings for this fast-paced documentary. Ms. Engel will share her behind-the-scenes story of what it took to make this important and compelling film during the Q&A.
