A critic of the Religious Right (and to be fair religion in general) was Gore Vidal, who many regard as one of America's last great public intellectuals. After an amazing life as novelist, essayist, playwright, screenwriter, patrician gadfly, and even for a time candidate and politician, Gore Vidal died in 2012, but not before filmmaker Nicholas Wrathall was able to spend time with Vidal and shoot some great footage for Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia.
The documentary had a very successful premiere at Tribeca Film Festival last month, but Wrathall and his team still need help with the final archival materials and post production.
You can help. And you'll get mentioned in the credits! Check out the documentary's Kickstarter page.
But deadline is fast approaching… please get involved. Even a small contribution is appreciated.
