Avondale Towne Cinema screening new documentary next week
Next week, Avondale Towne Cinema will screen a new indie documentary titled “The Brainwashing of My Dad” for Avondale’s Fright Night.
Created by award-winning filmmaker Jen Senko, the documentary takes an “up-close look at how constantly watching Fox News changed [Senko’s] father’s personality from an open-minded person to someone who became angry and intolerant,” according to a press release for the event. The film also looks at the politics behind the rise of the “Fox phenomenon.”
Senko has produced a number of films discussing national policies, including her most recent film, “The Vanishing City,” which focused on economic policies in New York. She’s also produced a number of independent narrative shorts.
The film screening will take place on Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. Senko will make an appearance at the screening, which will take place at Avondale Towne Cinema (106 North Avondale Road) in downtown Avondale Estates.
