Proceeds will benefit several national charity organizations including The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, PSI Youth Aids, The National Education Association’s Read Across America, HELP USA, The Pennsylvania State University, Blue Star Families, The Veterans Healing Initiative, Artists for a New South Africa, The African Medical and Research Foundation, The Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center and Being Alive San Diego. In POLIWOOD, legendary Academy Award-winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Bugsy, Diner, Avalon) sets out to explore the collision and collusion between politics and Hollywood. The film gives the viewer a front-row seat and backroom access to the most significant presidential campaign of the 21st century. Featuring interviews with high-profile celebrities and powerful political figures, POLIWOOD gives insider access to the influence Hollywood has over today’s political process as we discover the thin line between politician and actor, news and entertainment, policy and tabloid. Trailing a number of politically active actors, writers, directors, and musicians, this documentary is sure to spark debate about the role media and celebrities should have in modern-day politics. POLIWOOD features Annette Bening, Anne Hathaway, Sting, Susan Sarandon, Spike Lee, Fergie, Zooey Deschanel, Danny Glover, Tim Daly, Ellen Burstyn, Kerry Washington, Sam Moore, Elvis Costello, Alfre Woodard, Angela Bassett, Billy Baldwin, Charlie Daniels, Connie Britton, Dana Delany, David Crosby, Hayden Panettiere, Josh Lucas, Matthew Modine, Maura Tierney, Alan Cumming, Mos Def, Rachael Leigh Cook, Richard Schiff, Giancarlo Esposito, Steve Earle, The Pharcyde, Tony Goldwyn, and Will.i.am.
