LINCOLN IS CRYING: The Grifters, Grafters & Governors of Illinois is a scathing indictment of politics in the “Land of Lincoln”…and it’s funny too. The newly updated documentary from filmmakers John Davies and Brian Kallies presents a funny/sad look at the pervasive, deep-rooted culture of political corruption in Illinois. Why focus on Illinois? In the past half century, almost 2,000 elected officials and appointees—from both political parties—have been charged with and/or convicted of corruption, including, most recently, Alderman Ed Burke.


This event is a fundraiser for Media Burn, a Chicago-based nonprofit that collects, preserves, and distributes documentary and experimental media. By attending this event, you are supporting Media Burn’s mission to create positive social change by amplifying underheard voices, both in contemporary dialogue and the historical record. Media Burn’s founder, Tom Weinberg, and executive director, Sara Chapman will introduce the event.
