LOS ANGELES – Finally Free Media and filmmaker Mike Riley have teamed up to produce “The Uninformed States of America,” a documentary exploring the heated and controversial debate surrounding the overall cause of political apathy and ignorance in the United States.
This humorous and informative documentary will question many politically- centric issues within today’s society including, but not limited to, the lack of interest among Americans, mostly young, towards civic matters; the flaws within the American voting system and the negative effect of and potential solutions to both.
“Political apathy, especially amongst the youth, is nothing new,” Riley said. “However, in recent years this trend has increased substantially. Many American citizens have a very limited knowledge about who is representing them in government and/or how government works as a whole.”
This “political science experiment” will answer all of the pivotal questions plaguing many of America’s citizens such as voter fatigue and suppression, political alienation, lack of trust in both the government and media and the ever-apparent public ignorance.
“There is a rather cynical approach to government by most Americans due to the corruption embedded within the fabric of American politics and the overall voting process,” Riley said. “This has left many, mainly our younger voters, feeling government has very little effect on them, so there is no reason to get involved.”
Finally Free Media has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project by September 21, 2014. Those who back the project receive a full fledge membership into the faux political organization, “The Apathetic Party of America.” If the film reaches it’s goal in time, backers who have made their pledge will also receive an array of incentives from the film; including merchandise and a chance to be hosted at a private screening. Finally Free Media is also accepting submissions and requests for interviews and appearances within the film on the official website at www.theusafilm.com.
