(Astro)Turf Wars is both a journey through a unique moment in American history and a thoroughly researched piece of investigative journalism.
Through an examination of astroturfing and disinformation, we see how citizen democracy has been captured by powerful corporate interests.
Moreover, the film sets out to expose and thereby render ineffectual this deceptive practice that threatens not only the heath of American democracy, but that of its citizens and the planet as a whole.
Fascinated by this concept of astroturfing and curious to find out if these accusations were true, Australian filmmaker Taki Oldham hopped on a plane to investigate.
Going undercover as a curious onlooker, his month-long journey took him over 5000 miles, 6 states and right into the heart of the ‘American Dream’.
