FEATURES

Charlie vs Goliath is a feature-length documentary about an ordinary man’s extraordinary struggle to shake up the political establishment. It would be hard to find a more unlikely candidate than Charlie Hardy, a 75-year-old penniless former Catholic priest who spent nearly a decade serving the poor while living in a cardboard shack in a Venezuelan slum. In 2011, Charlie returns to his hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is shocked to see poverty, hunger and homelessness.

John McLendon was just added to the hall of fame in September. It is a story whose time has come. Directed by Kevin Willmott.

MOUSSE - What could be easier than robbing a small bookie place on the outskirts of town?
