Dinesh D'Souza, the conservative filmmaker, will stage a young Hillary Clinton's first encounters with leftist icon Saul Alinsky in his soon-to-be released film, "America."
A one-minute clip obtained by The Hollywood Reporter
shows the former secretary of state, portrayed by 22-year-old actress Jennifer Pearson, at the age of 14 talking to a youth minister who says he's excited for her to meet the man known for his famous book, "Rules for Radicals."
In his recently published book, "America: Imagine a World Without Her," on which the film is based, D'Souza says that Clinton first met Alinsky as a young teenager and reconnected with him in college.
D'Souza believes Alinsky "radicalized" Clinton and he notes that she wrote her undergraduate thesis on him. He also says in the book that if she wins the presidency in 2016, it will be the second president Alinsky will have influenced, the first being Barack Obama.
"In this case, Alinsky's influence will have taken on a massive, almost unimaginable, importance," D'Souza writes in his book, according to the Reporter.
"Obama will have had eight years to remake America, and Hillary will have another four or perhaps eight years to complete the job. Together, these two have the opportunity to largely undo the nation's founding ideals."
D'Souza told the Reporter, "In '2016' I focused on the mis-education of Obama. Here we explore the mis-education of Hillary Clinton. Is Hillary more like Bill Clinton or is she more like Obama? This is the question we answer in the film."
The film comes after D'Souza produced the second-highest grossing political documentary on record, "2016: Obama's America." "America" will arrive in theaters on July 4.
