Horns and Halos

Horns and Halos, a 2002 documentary film directed by Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky, is primarily about the difficult road the author (James Hatfield) and publisher (Sander Hicks at Soft Skull Press) travelled to bring Fortunate Son, a controversial biography of George W. Bush to bookshelves again. The film began when the filmmakers got a press release saying that Sander Hicks would be republishing the discredited bio. They followed the process of trying to bring the book back to shelves. After seeing the film at the Rotterdam Film Festival Matthew Tempest wrote in the Guardian, "With stunning revelations of presidential misdeeds, and the Watergate-style forces at hand to see the book is discredited, this documentary is a rolling masterclass on the disturbing complicity of media, money and mendacity."
