Chronicles Sarah Palin’s rise to national prominence as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate in 2008.
Alaska in mid-decade was a land of vast natural resources fought over by the largest companies in the world and governed by a corrupt and compromised political class. Rampant crony-capitalism stood in the way of the people of Alaska reaping the benefits of their natural birthright.
Enter a galvanizing reformer, a small town mayor who took on her own political party and brought on “sudden and relentless reform.” An epic two-hour feature documentary film, “The Undefeated” chronicles the rise from obscurity of one of America’s new generation of leaders: Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. Starting during the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989 when Palin worked a commercial fishing boat she owned with her blue-collar husband, the film shows the struggles, the victories and the setbacks during a controversial career.
Starring the leading conservative commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce, Andrew Breitbart; conservative activists Kate Obenshain, Sonnie Johnson, Jamie Radtke; and Alaskan civil servants, political leaders and advisors from the dramatic days of change in mid-decade, “The Undefeated” provides a fresh and revealing look at Governor Sarah Palin. The film is structured in three Acts and chronicles Palin’s early days in Wasilla; her achievements as Governor of Alaska, which yielded her an astonishing 80 percent approval rating; and her meteoric rise to the national stage as John McCain’s running mate. Taking on both the right and the left, “The Undefeated” takes an unflinching look at the state of discourse in contemporary American electoral politics. With a sweeping score, previously unseen footage and exclusive interviews, “The Undefeated” educates, entertains and challenges its audiences to take another look at someone who is much-discussed but whose story, despite all that is written and said about her, is actually largely untold.
