ELECTION EVE EQUAL TIME

On Friday, 10/29, IFC will air Fahrenheit 9/11: A Movement In Time - a documentary about the making of F 9/11 and the reaction it has garnered.

And in a BIG coup, on election eve - Monday 11/1 - IFC will air A Soldiers Pay, a documentary by David O Russell.

Russell made Soldiers Pay for the dvd re-release of his movie 3 Kings. It's a documentary that follows up 3 Kings by looking at soldiers in this Iraq war and specifically one soldier accused of stealing $700,000,000 of Saddam's fortune.

It shows real soldiers talking about what is REALLY going on in Iraq. It will be shown in tandem all night with a great doc about the Clinton Campaign - The War Room.

While IFC is cool about airing them, they will not spend much to market them. Some folks at IFC put themselves on the line in getting these films to air. It would be a shame if the effort was wasted.

Can I ask you to help spread the word?

Here's the schedule:

Friday 10/29 10pm e/p
FAHRENHEIT 9/11: A MOVEMENT IN TIME

Monday 11/1 (all times eastern):
8p THE WAR ROOM
9:35 A SOLDIER'S PAY
10:15 THE WAR ROOM
12a A SOLDIER'S PAY
12:35 THE WAR ROOM
1:15 A SOLDIER'S PAY

Anything you can do would be enormously appreciated.
