It's the Boogie Man

On Sat. Feb. 21, The Old Village Talking Picture House shows Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story. This documentary focuses on the political tactics Atwater used during George H.W. Bush’s 1988 presidential campaign. One congresswoman called Atwater “the most evil man in America.” Others just called him the meanest political son of a bitch of them all. He made "liberal" a bad word and changed the way Americans elect their presidents. Adored by Republicans and hated by Democrats, Atwater got what God had in store for him in the end. Director Stefan Forbes honed his camera craft by working on films such as Good Will Hunting, The Boondock Saints, and In Dreams. The film will be showed at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and tickets are $2 for members and $5 for non-members. —Emma Hart
