The Billionaires’ Tea Party

Was the Tea Party protest movement a grassroots uprising? Were operatives funded by billionaires Charles and David Koch manipulating citizen outrage to serve their interests? Australian filmmaker Taki Oldham traveled through America during the height of the Tea Party uprising to see for himself.  What he finds is a mix of both. But there is no denying the protestors’ passion, patriotism, and love of freedom. 

Broadcast around the world, the film played on Netflix in the US and is now available to watch on Kanopy.
