( In Production )
Right now, we're fundraising to finish the film and build an outreach campaign in Illinois. You can chip into The 39th on Kickstarter here!
After years of mismanagement and scandal, young progressive politician Will Guzzardi believes that he can mobilize a movement to upend Illinois’ political machine.
But he chose to run against Toni Berrios, daughter of one of the best connected (and most corrupt) pols in Chicago — and the establishment is not going to let her go down without a fight. The 39th follows Guzzardi as he fights for this seat block by block, and comes to terms with just how far the machine will go to hold on to power.
Directed by Laura Wilson and produced by Adam Wisneski.
