The social justice media organization, Brave New Films, has launched a new Hulu channel featuring the investigative films of director Robert Greenwald. With groundbreaking works such as “Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price,” “Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers,” and “Koch Brothers Exposed,” Brave New Films delivers politically-themed content to Hulu just in time for the election year debates.
“Our documentaries explore issues related to our country’s democracy, foreign policy, and the economy,” said Greenwald, who is the founder and president of Brave New Films. “We are thrilled to offer these films on Hulu, and to bring this information to such a broad audience at such a crucial time.”
Additionally, Brave New Films plans to adapt content from their Latino-themed project “Cuéntame” (Spanish for “count me”, or “tell me your story”) for Hulu Latino (hululatino.com). Cuéntame started two years as an on-line community for Latinos on Facebook, and has grown to represent 500,000 Latino supporters and 100,000 social media followers.
“One of our primary goals over the next month is raising awareness about voter registration, and encouraging get-out-the-vote efforts for the Latino community,” said Axel Caballero, director of Cuéntame. “Civic engagement is such a central part of our democracy, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to offer our content on Hulu Latino to ensure that people have their voice heard on Election Day.”
In addition to the Brave New Films titles listed above, the current selection will include the film “Outfoxed,” with more titles to be added later. The content from Cuéntame is expected to be available in the next few weeks.
