This week’s Kickstart Sunday project comes to us from director Jen Senko with her documentary The Brainwashing of my Dad.  The film tells the story of the filmmaker’s father as he was transformed into a completely different person because of conservative talk radio.  The film delves more deeply into this subject, by looking at other instances of this happening, and discussing the possible causes.

This seems like a very interesting subject and something worth throwing a couple bucks towards.  The Kickstarter project is currently at $8,607 of a $15,000 goal with 24 days to go.  Click here to donate and hit the jump for more information regarding the film.

 

When the filmmaker’s parents moved to a place where her father had a long solo commute to work and started listening to Talk Radio to alleviate the boredom, her family saw him change from a non-political Democrat to a radicalized, angry Right-Wing Republican. What happened to Dad?
