Andrew Breitbart may no longer be with us, but his film legacy has yet to be written.
The filmmakers of both movies are vague about their distribution and marketing plans, no doubt mindful that their efforts could be perceived as callous attempts to profit from tragedy. Therefore, it’s difficult to predict which movie will hit screens first.
The first one conceived, though, is called “Hating Breitbart,” which began two-and-a-half years ago when a camera crew started shadowing their subject at events like Tea Party rallies, where he’d whip like-minded activists into a frenzy with his fiery oratory, as well as Occupy Wall Street protests, where he’d elicit – appropriately, given the title of the film – tremendously hateful responses to his mere presence.
The second film, in fact, is an expose’ of that left-wing movement called “Occupy Unmasked” from Stephen Bannon, who was behind the pro-Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated.” A trailer of “Occupy Unmasked” begins with President Barack Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, along with media figures like Bill Maher, Michael Moore and Tim Robbins expressing their support for Occupy Wall Street.
