Jimmy McMillan has already blurred the line between parody and sincerity with his gloves, his album, and frankly his entire campaign. But just because the campaign is over doesn't mean the publicity boat has sailed! Filmmakers Aaron Fisher-Cohen and Kristian Almgren have just finished their documentary on the gubarnatorial-candidate-turned-national-hero, DAMN!, and are planning to release it at SXSW in March.
