About the Movie

By the Eighties, John Zielinski was a well-known author and photographer. His work had appeared in Life Magazine, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune and countless other publications. But in a devastating 1984 contract dispute, he lost $50,000 and his professional credibility. "This was the opening shot - turning me back into an investigative reporter." Today Zielinski is the most blacklisted author in the history of Iowa. For 25 years he has dedicated his life to exposing human traffickers, pedophiles, drug dealers and Satanists. But as he says, "They don't kill you unless you become effective." The film traces the rise and fall of a true American original who has sacrificed everything in his quest for justice. Filmmakers Chase Thompson and Ryan Walker tell the story without voice over, using 47 years of source material, new interviews and music by Mark Speckman.

Must see!

Conspiracy theorist. Amish photographer. Dance music. Yes!

A Hot Mess...

This could have been interesting, but the poor editing and soundtrack are too distracting.
The work of amateurs.

Resonates long after you see it

Zielinski is one of those docs that on the surface seems like a one of those quirky--character docs but has much more depth because of the directions the filmmakers take with Zielinkski. I saw it on the festival circuit and then recently watched it again. It's amazing how much it resonates more now with the Penn State and Boy Scout news.
