Rebel Evolution

Synopsis

Rebel Evolution is a feature-length documentary about Brandon Michael Darby, a former left-wing activist turned FBI informant whose political journey has much to tell us about the nature of patriotism, activism, and freedom in contemporary America. The film asks Americans to look beyond political labels and unite as owners of shared principles and a shared heritage – one wherein individuals have the right to think and speak for themselves. In exploring the concept of “social justice,” Rebel Evolution shows how the greatest guarantor of human rights and dignity isn't the “collective” – it's liberty. Featuring former Weather Underground leader turned college professor Bill Ayers, homeless advocate Ted Hayes, and more, Rebel Evolution aims to spark a political dialogue that increases the voices of those who truly seek to preserve and promote liberty – creating a new political dialogue beyond that of just the traditional left and right.Official Film Website
