Abstract

Slant is a short documentary that examines House of Cards, Veep, and Parks and Recreation through the lens of cynicism of government. Through interviews and analyses of the media this short film shows how America is particularly cynical at this point in time and the impact our fictional political television shows are having on us whether we are aware of it or not.
