In this modern-day David vs. Goliath, filmmaker Jed Rigney follows Jerrol LeBaron as he sets out on a journey to make our politicians do the jobs they were hired to do.
Faced with out-of-touch politicians and a broken political process, can one man really make a difference?
Comments and Reviews
"With 'Fools on the Hill' we expose and address fundamental problems within the political system. We do it without blaming any particular party, and we do it in a light-hearted, interesting and entertaining way.
"My friend Mark Beech recently said 'Change does not usually come on the strength of one or two votes in Congress. It is public opinion and attitudes solidifying into customs and social values, and then into votes.' WomenÌÎ_Ì´åÇs right to vote and the Civil Rights Act are perfect examples. Politicians didnÌÎ_Ì´åÇt pass these laws because they were the right thing to do, or they would have passed them a long time earlier. They did it because we as a people united and demanded it.
"Public opinion starts with you and me, and with that in mind, I need your help in making our elected officials accountable.
"You can lend your support by getting several 'Fools on the Hill' DVDs and sharing them with your friends."
"Your film is FANTASTIC!! It is powerful and funny in the right places. I really LOVED the David and Goliath theme. The interviews were excellent and from a broad array of people. I thought it was a nice touch to also have interviews with the ACLU along with conservative groups represented. You really showed a broad support across the political spectrum."

"This really brought a tear to my eye, to see and hear a young person articulate so well something we ALL should be passionate about made ÌÎ_Ì´å me feel like thereÌÎ_Ì´åÇs hope for this next generation. IÌÎ_Ì´åÇm embarrassed to say that IÌÎ_Ì´åÇve known this kind of thingÌÎ_Ì´åÇs been going on since I was in my 20?s ÌÎ_Ì´å had a friend I met for coffee in DC when I was passing through with HOI who was a student at Georgetown. The stories he told us about tunnels and runners and bills (oh my!) fascinated me and, being young and in a hurry just to get to the next party, I didnÌÎ_Ì´åÇt realize the implications of what he had said until much later in life. Looking back, it makes me sick that no one has ever done anything about this practice. But now, with the instant knowledge base we as Americans have with the www, there is really no excuse for 1) people to NOT be informed, and 2) people not to have their voices heard. Congratulations to your Gato [associate producer] for his successes, and to you for raising a good man."
