Streaming 11/27-12/17: LINCOLN IS CRYING Documentary

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 new award-winning documentary (Best Documentary Winner at the 2020 Colorado International Activism Film Festival) from filmmakers John Davies and Brian Kallies presents a humorous yet poignant look at the pervasive, deep-rooted culture of political corruption in Illinois. Why focus on Illinois? Well, it’s the most corrupt state in America and home to Chicago, the most corrupt city in America. LINCOLN IS CRYING is a cautionary tale for all other states and given what’s happening in national politics, it couldn’t be timelier.

Tickets are $10 each and 50% of all ticket sales will benefit Media Burn.

The film will have its Internet premiere courtesy of the Gene Siskel Film Center beginning Friday, November 27th.

The broadcast premiere of this new documentary will take place on WTTW Channel 11 Tuesday, December 22nd at 9:00 pm.

“Putting it all into a fast-paced 86-minute documentary that features a wide range of journalists, legal experts, artists—and comedians—we hope we’ve made an impactful, timely, and entertaining film.” -Executive Producer John Davies
