New documentary Granny Power finds the political power in old age

This just in: A new political documentary is about to be unleashed on the world and it just might star your grandmother. Granny Power is a new film from social doc maker and Montreal resident Magnus Isacsson, and it promises to be an inspired journey into the volatile heartland of politicking pensioners.

The Raging Grannies have been muckraking and speaking back to power for years, most notably in Vancouver, BC, where their recent actions saw some of their members unjustly landed behind prison bars (see the Art Threat story link below for more).

They are such an active, colourful, and political group I often wondered when someone would make a doc on them. Well, Power Grannies has been in the making for three years, and it will indeed be released, but first they need a helping hand.

The independent filmmakers behind the project are looking for donations, and for those of you who want to see the Raging Grannies immortalized in cinema, lend them a hand.
