Video: The Reformers takes on controversial Douglas County School Board

Colorado documentary-maker Brian Malone has taken on some big topics over the years, including the media in Breaking News and environmental dangers via Intelligent Life -- not to mention the late, great Blinky the Clown. But his latest project -- The Reformers, launching tonight in Parker -- is among his most passionate and personal. The subject? The Douglas County School Board, which had him arrested earlier this year for taking video of a meeting. Get details and see clips from The Reformers below.
