The First Angry Man

THE FIRST ANGRY MAN. A new documentary by award-winning filmmakers Jason Cohn and Camille Servan-Schreiber and narrated by Pamela Adlon (Better Things King of the Hill), recounts Howard Jarvis’ 1978 tax-slashing ballot initiative, Proposition 13, that promised to end big government in California. The documentary unpacks the dramatic campaign that led to the collapse of great public ambitions of postwar America and launched an enduring nationwide tax revolt that continues today.
