Documentary, Drama

Eight years in the making, The Joe Show is a shocking and wildly entertaining documentary on America's most controversial Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and his ringmaster's approach to modern media, politics and law enforcement.

The nature of politics has changed so that in today's world of instant fame, politicians need their time in the spotlight. And Joe loves the spotlight. Response time is compromised for screen time, credibility for celebrity and safety for sound bites. Joe's desire for fame corrupts everything he stands for and the voters cheer as ratings soar. The Joe Show is a feature-length documentary that explores how Joe has used fear, crime and his role as Sheriff to make himself the most famous law enforcement officer in the world. Racism, sex crimes, illegal immigration, first amendment rights and multiple deaths at the hands of his employees are all issues Joe faces and spins. He's famous, he's outrageous, he may be dangerous... and it's all just part of The Joe Show, a tragic comedy of historic significance. CAN DEMOCRACY SURVIVE WHEN PERSUADING VOTERS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PROTECTING THEM?
