THE DEAN SCREAM tells the story of 2004 U.S. presidential candidate Howard Dean and his fateful “I Have a Scream” speech, which became the first viral moment in American politics.
The film is an examination of the media and it's role in election politics. It serves as a case study of how the media can inadvertently sabotage or advance a political campaign, potentially altering the results of an election by their relentless pursuit of stories that will keep audiences tuned-in rather than informed.
