Preview by Jack Foley
UNIVERSAL Pictures (UK) announces the October 15, 2012 release of the insightful documentary Sarah Palin: You Betcha!, Nick Broomfield’s latest investigation into the real persona behind the person, this time looking at one the USA’s most divisive political figures of recent times.
Sarah Palin: You Betcha! is released three weeks before the US Elections, perfectly timed to delve deeper into her story building up to the Election Day.
Also released on the same day is the Nick Broomfield Documentary Collection, the most complete collection of Nick Broomfield documentaries ever released in the UK comprising 16 films on DVD including Sarah Palin: You Betcha!
The box set includes Nick’s early short films (including Proud To Be British in 1973), through to some of his most well-known films Biggie And Tupac and Kurt & Courtney.
Presented together for the first time these films from a British Filmmaking legend, a true forerunner to the likes of Michael Moore, Louis Theroux, Werner Herzog.
Ground-breaking, uncompromising, Nick Broomfield has been making documentary films for over 30 years – all with the common purpose; the relentless pursuit of truth.
Nick Broomfield’s quest for the real Sarah Palin involves battling the icy snows of Alaska in mid-winter, the school friends, family and Republican colleagues that in previous days gave their heart, soul and belief to the charismatic, charming and intoxicating ex-hockey mum.
But it’s not all plain sailing. People are frightened to talk, and Wasilla makes Twin Peaks look like a walk in the park – a devout evangelical community of 6,000 people and the crystal meth capital of Alaska.
So, who are the flying monkeys, the enemies, the friends and most importantly – are you with her or against her? To find out, join the quest in Nick Broomfield’s Sarah Palin: You Betcha!, but remember to buy some thermals!
