Sarah Palin isn’t the only conservative woman with a movie to plug.
Citizens United Productions has launched a $100,000 advertising campaign for its film, “Fire from the Heartland,” a documentary highlighting the role of conservative women in politics today. The movie stars Minnesota Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.
The campaign includes billboards and advertising on television and online, “culminating at the Ames Straw Poll on August 13th where Citizens United Productions will have a booth,” according to a statement from the company. The movie costs $19.95.
The 30-second television spot features a narration from Bachmann: “We can’t even begin to calculate how expensive that loss of individual liberty is. So when government interferes with those rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, government is treading on very dangerous ground.”
“Fire from the Heartland” is written and directed by Stephen Bannon, who directed the Palin movie, “The Undefeated.” The movie’s production company, Citizens United, is most famous for being the petitioner in a landmark Supreme Court ruling barring limits on corporate campaign spending.
