The movie is called 'Hating Breitbart' and it opens nationwide, eight months after the Conservative media star passed away suddenly at the age of 43. Andrew Marcus wrote and directed the movie, and says Breitbart’s battle goes on even though he's not here to lead it.
“He taught us how to fight and we are going to fight the fight. That’s where I drew my strength, from the people that new him best,” Marcus said.
Marcus had exclusive access to Breitbart for the last two years of his life and says that when the cameras were off, he saw a different guy than we all saw on television.
“He was truly fun to be around. Ask any of his detractors who had the opportunity to get to know him for a few minutes. They loved him,” Marcus explained.
James O'Keefe of Project Veritas, the man who exposed ACORN with undercover videos a couple of years ago, was one of the journalists that Breitbart fought for and told KTRH what he'll remember most about him.
“He would promote an independent story and would defend an independent piece of journalism. He would defend it and attack the critics,” O’Keefe said.
O’Keefe also says Breitbart was a guy who knew how to get a message out and that he changed the media forever.
“He has a very good sensibility for the news. He was not just a commentator. He was not just a pundit,” O’Keefe told KTRH.
In Houston, you can catch the film at the Cinemark on Market Street in The Woodlands.
