Just in time for the November 2012 General Election, the Reel and Meal at the New Deal partners with the Utopia Film Festival for the screening of Koch Brothers Exposed. The evening begins at 6:30 pm with an optional, $13.00 vegan buffet & 7:00 pm for the film.


KBE is a 2012 political documentary, compiled by Robert Greenwald from a viral video campaign produced by Brave New Films, about the political activities and influence of the Koch brothers.


The billionaire brothers bankroll a vast network of organizations that work to undermine the interests of the 99% on issues ranging from Social Security to the environment to civil rights. The film is a hard-hitting investigation of the 1% at its very worst - uncovering the Kochs' corruption - and pointing the way to how Americans can reclaim their democracy.
