Nat Bates For Mayor
Available on Tubi TV
This documentary chronicles the 2014 mayoral race in Richmond, CA - where Chevron spent more than $3 million to back 83-year-old African American candidate Nat Bates. Nothing is clear-cut as the film potently mixes issues of corporate influence, race, gentrification, homophobia, political self-determination, and humor, all told through the lives of bigger-than-life small-town characters.
Director Bradley Berman, Eric Weiss
