Aspiring Filmmaker Screws Around With Congress

It took some doing. But Brett Lewis is just about finished with his ode to everything that’s wrong with #ThisTown, the ribald “C Street.”

“Some things happened along the way, but I persevered,” Lewis, who lost his mother to cancer last spring, said of the unexpected twist and turns he’s had to navigate to translate the vision in his head on to the big screen.  

He originally intended to share his version of “pols gone wild” with the world ahead of the 2012 elections, but had to delay that self-imposed deadline as the money hunt — he attempted to raise $50,000 in 2012, but came up short — and personal issues continued cropping up.  

All that’s changed. Save for some finishing touches, Lewis said the film is just about ready for public consumption.  

The story focuses on a Senate staffer who gets wrapped up in congressional infidelity when morally bankrupt leaders turn his apartment into their personal playground.
