"Documentary about Sanders, left-leaning activists gets world premiere at Denton's Thin Line Fest"

In today's Denton Record-Chronicle:

Filmmaker Jacob Smith said the crew behind Waking the Sleeping Giant wasn't sure what kind of movie they were making back in 2014.

"When we started, it was clear something important was happening," Smith said. "I was working for Bernie [Sanders] when this started. He was doing these town hall meeting that were incredibly well-received. ... But it was more than that, bigger than that. In red states, we were seeing minimum wage initiatives pass at the polls. And in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chevron basically bankrolled a city council election, and they lost and lost in a major way."

Waking the Sleeping Giant: The Making of a Political Revolution opens Denton's Thin Line Fest with a world-premiere screening at 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Campus Theatre, 214 W. Hickory St.
