Film Synopsis:
In her brave and revealing new film, director Jen Senko, tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non political, Kennedy Democrat to an angry, Right-Wing fanatic. Join her on this journey that uncovers the forces behind the media that changed him completely: a plan by Roger Ailes under Nixon for a media takeover by the GOP, The Powell Memo urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion, especially the universities, the media and the courts, and under Reagan, the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine.

As her investigation continues, we discover that her father is part of a much broader demographic, and that the story is one that affects us all.

Through interviews with media luminaries, cognitive linguists, grassroots activist groups such as: Noam Chomsky, Jeff Cohen, Eric Boehlert, George Lakoff, Claire Conner and others, THE BRAINWASHING OF MY DAD unravels the plan to shift the country to the Right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation which has lead to fewer voices, less diversity of opinion, massive intentional misinformation and greater division of our country.
