Hedrick Smith, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former The New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent, has established himself over the past 50 years as one of America’s premier journalists. For the past four years, Smith has cross-crossed America, reporting on grass roots movements in more than 20 states and doing on-location filming that captures people power clashing with power brokers and the political establishment in half a dozen states, and scoring surprising victories. The documentary film, “Winning Back Our Democracy,” is an outgrowth of Smith’s most recent best-selling book, “Who Stole the American Dream?” a stunning account of how we have become two Americas and fallen into a dysfunctional political system. It has been hailed by reviewers both for its compelling stories and brilliant analysis.   Fore more information click here [PDF].
