The saying that “Washington is Hollywood for ugly people” may be more true than we know.

Documentary filmmaker Steven C. Barber explained what Hollywood and Washington have in common: bureaucracy. Barber was recently in D.C. to get permission to screen his new film “Until They Are Home” at the U.S. Capitol. The film tells the story of the search for the remains of  World War II soldiers who went missing in action while fighting in the South Pacific.

He spoke about the experience with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas.

“There’s a lot of similarities between Hollywood and Washington,” Barber said, “except it’s just a lot easier to get a movie screened in Hollywood.”

Sponsored by Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Ron Kind, the film is scheduled to premier Sept. 19 in the U.S. Capital Visitors Center. For information on attending, email
