Coming to a theater near you

John Hinderaker talks about the new documentary Indoctrinate U:

Evan Coyne Maloney is a skilled filmmaker who has produced lots of conservative-oriented videos. Among other things, he likes to attend far-left demonstrations and interview protesters to find out how much they understand about the issues on which they are demonstrating. The results are often illuminating.

Evan's first full-length movie, I believe, is Indoctrinate U, a documentary about liberal bias in American higher education. No serious observer doubts that such bias exists, but not everyone wants to make a record of it. Evan did, and the resulting product is spectacular. The web site about Evan's movie is
here. No major distributor wanted to take a chance on Evan's film, so he is going it alone, with an innovative campaign that involves internet users registering their desire to see the movie. It seems to be working pretty well; tonight, Indoctrinate U had its Minnesota debut at the Oak St. theatre, just off the campus of the University of Minnesota. Evan was there for the premiere--the movie will run on Oak St. for a week--and, if I'm not mistaken, Scott was there tonight too. In fact, I think one of his daughters appears in the film.

Here is the trailer:
