The Audience Strikes Back

2008 NR

Following the release of Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, eight fans are invited to take part in a filmed discussion about the movie saga. But what begins as a simple experiment soon becomes a free-for-all. Topics stray from Star Wars to the Iraq War, abortion, Christian fundamentalism, corporate monopolies and gay marriage. Patrick Beacham wrote and directed this satire of Star Wars fans and the culture wars of the new century.
