A documentary about the interplay of private funds and politics is approaching $150,000 in funding, which would double the original goal of $75,000.
We first reported on Citizen Koch earlier this month when the campaign had just surpassed the stated goal. Kickstarter has stepped in as a funding source for the politically-charged documentary after PBS funding was pulled for the film. The Kickstarter campaign trailer (below) outlines the details of this case.
This is an instance where crowdfunding is flexing its proverbial muscles a bit; well-established filmmakers and documentarians are shut out by the elite and turn to the masses to bridge the gap. The film is expected to be released worldwide sometime in 2014.
