Sarah Palin: You Betcha!
USA, 2011, 91 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Documentary, Political
Exclusive Denver FilmCenter Engagement Must End Oct 20
Digital presentation – YOU BETCHA! chronicles Broomfield’s quest to unveil the “real” Sarah Palin, and follows the filmmaker as he battles the icy snows of Alaska in mid-winter to speak to the school friends, family, and Republican colleagues that in previous days gave their heart, soul and belief to the charismatic, charming, intoxicating ex-hockey mom. But it’s not all plain sailing. People are frightened to talk — Wasilla makes Twin Peaks look like a walk in the park. It’s a devout evangelical community — 76 churches with a population of only 6 thousand, and the Crystal meth capital of Alaska. Broomfield brings his celebrated wit and determination to cracking her story through controversial interviews and surprise encounters with Ms. Palin herself.
DIRECTOR: Nick Broomfield
