In this searing exposé on the state of American Democracy, Deal and Lessin follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. In the wake of the Citizens United ruling, the film investigates the impact on unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process. Both humorous and deeply troubling, CITIZEN KOCH is an essential portrait of our political time. ** 2013 Sundance Film Festival
