The First Angry Man
Directed by Jason Cohn &
Camille Servan-Schreiber

If you ever wondered how the great public ambitions of postwar America collapsed into a permanent tax revolt and the election of a real estate developer as president, look no further than Howard Jarvis, whose 1978 ballot initiative, Proposition 13, changed everything in California and beyond.

Narrated by Pamela Adlon and featuring lively archival footage and
interviews with first-hand witnesses to the events, including governor Gray Davis, Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz and anti-tax firebrand Grover Norquist, The First Angry Man invites viewers to see our era as an anomaly in American history, at odds with some of our nation's deepest underpinnings.

Filmmakers Jason Cohn and Camille Servan-Schreiber (Eames: The Architect and the Painter) unpack the dramatic campaign, its quirky characters and its enduring consequences.
