In 2005 he was gunning for revolution, less than two years later he had switched his allegiance to 'the man'. Far-left activist turned FBI informant Brandon Darby reflects on this trip through the political divide in Rebel Evolution, an exploration of the adage that ‘liberals are the ones with hearts, and conservatives the ones with brains’ that runs into the nexus of activism and morality. Also featuring Joe England, Ted Hayes, Kevin DuJan, AlfonZo Rachel, and Bill Ayers.
From the Moving Picture Institute:
Rebel Evolution is a feature-length documentary about Brandon Michael Darby, a former leftist turned FBI informant whose political journey has much to tell us about the nature of patriotism, activism, and freedom in contemporary America.
An investigation of the adage that "liberals are the ones with hearts, and conservatives the ones with brains," Rebel Evolution explores how earnest citizens can engage both. The film asks Americans to look beyond political labels and unite as owners of shared principles and a shared heritage -- one wherein individuals have the right to think and speak for themselves. In exploring the concept of "social justice," Rebel Evolution shows how the greatest guarantor of human rights and dignity isn't the "collective," but liberty.
Featuring former Weather Underground leader turned college professor Bill Ayers, homeless advocate Ted Hayes, and more, Rebel Evolution aims to spark a new political dialogue beyond that of just the left and right—one that increases the voice of those who truly seek to preserve and promote liberty.
