WATCH ON DEMAND + FILMMAKER TALKBACK ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15 @8PM
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
(free online VOD screening + conversation)
Because we feel that conversations about politics in this country are more important now than ever in this election year, we've partnered with the Kunhardt Film Foundation, a not-for-profit educational media company that produces documentary films, interviews and teaching tools about the people and ideas that shape our world, to present this important film and offer a talkback for realtime discussion.
Having served 31 years, the six-term senior Arizona senator John McCain agreed to participate in a documentary shortly after being diagnosed with brain cancer, providing unprecedented access to his daily life in Washington, D.C. and Sedona, Arizona. This sweeping account combines the senator's own voice, culled from original interviews, commentary and speeches, with archival newsreel and television footage and previously unseen home movies and photographs. The film also features interviews with family, friends, colleagues and leading political figures. Senator McCain’s recent battle with brain cancer underscores his fighting spirit and resilience as he continues to crusade for the causes he believes in, despite advancing health issues and daunting odds. What emerges is a portrait of an American maverick who has kept his eye on the most important American goals.
