Russo’s IRS Documentary to Premier in Tucson

UPDATE: Russo just e-mailed and clarified a bit more about the film:

The film is a positive/truthful documentary that explores the IRS and whether or not there is any law that requires an individual to file a 1040 or whether it is a fraud being perpetrated by the gov’t.

It also goes into great detail about the federal reserve and the loss of freedoms in America.

I’ve been in communication with Aaron Russo a lot over the last few weeks about his new film which documents some cases of IRS abuse. I was not going to announce the first airing of the show quite yet (as we are trying to make arrangements for a second showing in the same general area on the same weekend). The message has now hit some e-mail lists, so I’ll pass it on:

Feature Film About IRS Coming

“America…from Freedom to Facism [sic]”

Aaron Russo, the accomplished Hollywood producer and director has just completed “America … from Freedom to Facism [sic],” a feature film about the IRS, the Federal Reserve and the New World Order.

Russo’s films, which include “Trading Places” (starring Eddie Murphy) and “The Rose” (starring Bette Midler), have received six academy award nominations. Russo has personally won both an Emmy and a Tony award and his films have also won a number of Golden Globe awards.

Mr. Russo, as writer, director and producer, is entering “America…” in the May 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Not unlike the showing of Mel Gibson’s film “The Passion” to congregations across America in advance of its formal release, Russo has offered to present his new film in advance of its premier showing in Cannes, to the congregations of patriots assembled at the upcoming WTP regional conferences.

The 95-minute film, “America… from Freedom to Facism [sic],” will be shown in its entirety at the Tucson WTP meeting on Saturday, January 28th. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Saturday January 28, 1 PM – 5 PM

I haven’t seen the film yet, but assisted with some of the field production and am very excited about its release.

Hopefully, we will be able to play the film in Phoenix at the Libertarian State Chairs’ Conference, which will be held on the same weekend. Unfortunately, there are scheduling problems, and this is becoming difficult to arrange. I’ll provide any updates as I have them. Thanks to Rick for the tip.

  1. Gordon,

    Do you know when it will be available for purchase? That’s what I’m interested in, so I can get a couple copies and distribute among friends.

  2. Bob Schulz is a great guy but his WTP group is a 501c3 tax-exempt (revenues come from write-offs) while its goal is abolishing the IRS scam! His ‘We the People Congress’ is so Ross Perot (unconstitutional), too.

    It’s great to see a feature film on the IRS scam, but how is Russo going to distribute it? Theaters hardly want to be audited by the largest terrorist organization on earth!

    I hope the movie does well; I intend to buy a few copies. But we need to go beyond litanies of tyranny, to solutions; start acting like free people, as our forefathers did.

    Our Tax Honesty site doesn’t ask for donations and we don’t sell anything. We don’t just prove that the IRS scam exists…we show terrorized ‘taxpayers’ HOW the scam operates, and direct you to principles that can free you from a life of terror.

    Come visit and if you think it worthy, give a link to friends before Russo’s film airs, so they’ll know what to actually DO about it.
