Screening Schedules: "What's the Matter with Kansas?" - Discomfit Magazine

"What's the Matter with Kansas?" screenings in Chicago, Tulsa, and Oklahoma City

Dear Michael,

We had a very successful premiere in New York City at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on August 6th, which was followed by a panel on "the future of conservatism." The movie was warmly received and the night got great notices and geared us up for screenings to follow.

Our next big step is the Chicago premiere of the film, September 18th-24th, where it will play at the legendary Gene Siskel Film Center for a week. It is certainly important to us to be able to show off our baby in our home town, and we can't wait for people to see the film and react to it.
