Conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon has produced a two-hour documentary on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin
to premiere next month in Iowa. The movies will serve as a prelude to a potential Palin presidential bid, the blog RealClearPolitics.com reported Wednesday.
Bannon controlled the entire production, even pouring $1 million of his own money into it. The results are in, and the Palins love it, according to the blog.
"This film is a call to action for a campaign like 1976: Reagan vs. the establishment," Bannon said. "Let's have a good old-fashioned brouhaha."
Palin asked her close aide Rebecca Mansour to contact Bannon after last fall’s 2010 mid-term elections that swept many Republican into office across the country. Palin supported many of the winning candidates. Bannon took up the project, and headed to Alaska.
"We shot on the weekends, and we shot in locations that weren't being used during those weekends," Bannon said. "I did it with a handpicked crew of people I know and trust, and we were able to stay under the radar. The planning for the secrecy of this took many, many weeks."
The film doesn’t feature Palin, but it has many on-camera interviews and commentaries from 10 Alaskans who played different roles in her political rise. Bannon also interviewed prominent conservative such as Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart and Tammy Bruce for the film.
