The Senator Estes Kefauver Story

This interview with former Vice President Al Gore is an excerpt from the upcoming documentary, Speaking Truth to Power: The Senator Estes Kefauver Story.  Senator Kefauver headed a U.S. Senate committee investigating organized crime.  The Committee's hearings, which were televised live just as many Americans were buying televisions, made Kefauver nationally famous and introduced many Americans to the concept of a criminal organization known as the Mafia.  This documentary includes many high-profile interviews (including the last with the late JFK speechwriter and advisor Ted Sorenson) and was shot on location in Boston, Washington D.C., and throughout the State of Tennessee.  This film is currently in production and is being produced in partnership with Jon Rubin of National Image Works.
