Republic of Fear focuses on a report by the Washington-based Center for Public Integrity entitled 'The War Card.' The report uncovers a concerted
campaign of falsehoods by Bush Administration officials that paved the way for the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Relying on archival footage and an in-depth
interview with the report's co-author, Charles Lewis, the film probes the terrorizing climate of fear that the government falsehoods, aided by a
cowed media, created in our society and questions whether we do, in fact, have a democracy.
