Description: 
Charlie vs Goliath (www.charlievsgoliath.com) is an award winning documentary about a penniless former Catholic priest named Charlie Hardy who challenges the political establishment in the state of Wyoming. Known as the “Bernie Sanders of Wyoming,” Charlie spent eight years living in a cardboard shack in Venezuela before returning to his home state of Wyoming, where he ran for the US Senate on a platform of getting money out of politics. The film is a case study of what it’s like for an ordinary person without money to run for higher office in this country, but it also tells a bigger story about the value of fighting for what’s right no matter how bleak the circumstances. Q&A with the Director, Reed Lindsay, will follow the screening.
