IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

The Political Collection

There is just no mixing oil and water, the latter and former being the affluent political convolutions of Tea Party Republicans and Liberals on Capital Hill these past few months. This time around the hollowed leaders of this, our free nation America contend on a debt crisis and how to solve it without losing vot— er.. more money. The age old saying that 'an opinion can't be wrong' entitles each side to its argument and stand points which is great for us, because independent filmmakers have A LOT to say about politics. We don't particularly have a slant one way or the other here at IndiePix (wait, can the embodiment of Independent Film run for Prez?). Nevertheless, in the spirit of reasoning and, understanding how the people digest government and all its intrigues, we offer you these film selections featuring in-depth takes on the bare bones of politics.
