Crucial to determining the Republican candidate for the presidential election, Iowa is the start of a mad political race. Director AJ Schnack chronicles eight candidates including Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Ron Paul as they bid for votes in 99 counties. While news coverage presented only small sound bites of the candidates, Schnack’s documentary delves behind the scenes. Filmed over ten months, Caucus reveals the difficulty and intense competition of the race for the presidency. Caucus shows the candidates as people and passionate politicians, giving audiences a closer look at politics at play behind the curtain.
