What They're Saying

"Republicans finally have their answer to Michael Moore: Celsius 41.11"
- New York Times

"Give Michael Moore a taste of his own medicine."
- Daily Variety

"Conservatives are launching a cinematic counterstrike."
- Washington Post

" Bush lovers, rejoice. Your ship has come in...

"The contrasts are startling. "Fahrenheit" Bush was a deer in the headlights; "Celsius" Bush is a deer hunter. "Fahrenheit" Bush barely could speak in complete sentences; "Celsius" Bush delivers confident speeches. And so on...

No matter your political persuasion or worldview, films such as this help perpetuate the debate."

CITIZENS UNITED TO PREMIERE "CELSIUS 41.11 -
THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE BRAIN BEGINS TO DIE"

Documentary Challenges Lies in "Fahrenheit 9/11"; Deconstructs John Kerry

Citizens United announced today it has produced the feature length documentary "CELSIUS 41.11 THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE BRAIN BEGINS TO DIE," to refute the propaganda in Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

"Celsius 41.11 - The Temperature at Which the Brain Begins to Die," is scheduled to begin running theatrically in a number of markets later this month. Citizens United hired Hollywood heavyweights Lionel Chetwynd, Ted Steinberg and Kevin Knoblock to write, produce and direct the film.

Featuring former Senator and star of Law & Order, Fred Thompson, Charles Krauthammer, Fred Barnes, Michael Medved, Michael Barone and Bill Sammon among other Washington veterans, the film counters the lies and deceptions of "Fahrenheit" 9/11 and provides a full deconstruction of Senator John Kerry, the Democrat presidential nominee.

"After seeing the impact of "Fahrenheit 9/11," we decided that there must be a response to correct the record," said David Bossie, president of Citizens United and Executive Producer of "Celsius 41.11." "When lies are repeated often enough, they become the truth. That is what we are fighting today, groups like MoveOn.org, The Media Fund, and other left wing organizations spending over one hundred million dollars spreading lies in order to discredit President Bush."

"Michael Moore, MoveOn.org., and their ilk have built up so much heat, through hatred, anger and rage, that they're not thinking rationally, which led us to the movie's title, 'Celsius 41.11: The Temperature at which the Brain Begins to Die," added Bossie.

Celsius 41.11 is not a point-by-point refutation of "Fahrenheit," but corrects the record on the important misleading themes in Moore's movie, including the 2000 Florida presidential vote, weapons of mass destruction, intelligence failures and the war on terror.

In addition, the film documents Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry's 20-year Senate record, from his flip-flopping on important issues to his intent on reducing funding for America's military and intelligence community, even after the first terrorist attack on American soil. The film also covers the first term of President Bush, his record as a leader in the war on terror, and the stark contrasts between the President and Senator Kerry.

"We're hopeful that open-minded people will watch this movie and come away better prepared to cast their vote in November," said Bossie. "It is a factual account of issues that voters need to consider about before accepting the lies and propaganda from zealots like Michael Moore."

"Celsius 41.11" takes it roots from Bossie's most recent books, The Many Faces of John Kerry, for which Bossie and a team of researchers and lawyers spent months researching John Kerry, and Intelligence Failure: How Clinton's National Security Policy Set the Stage for 9/11.

Bossie is the former Chief Investigator for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, where he led investigations into Chinese espionage and campaign finance scandals during President Clinton's term. . He previously served in the United States Senate as an investigator on the Special Committee to investigate the Whitewater land deal.

"Celsius 41.11 - The Temperature at Which the Brain Begins to Die" is an Adams County Production of a Citizens United film, executive produced by David Bossie and Craig Haffner, written and produced by the team of Lionel Chetwynd & Ted Steinberg and directed by Kevin Knoblock.
