The 1993 film THE LAST PARTY followed Robert Downey, Jr.'s initiation in to the world of politics. In 2000 came the sequel, THE PARTY'S OVER, following Philip Seymour Hoffman on the campaign trail. The third film in the trilogy, THE AFTER PARTY is a story about domestic surveillance and civil liberties in the post 9/11 era, framed by an inciting incident that happened during the 2004 Republican National Convention. Told from the perspective of a cinematographer who was arrested during the convention, this film brings together pop culture and politics with the flair of gonzo journalism. With special appearances by Andre "3000" Benjamin, Barack Obama, The Bush Twins, Cornel West, Al Sharpton and Don King.
