ABOUT BRAD LICHTENSTEIN
Brad Lichtenstein is an award-winning filmmaker and the president of 371 Productions.  He has been working in documentary production since 1992.  His latest film, As Goes Janesville, is a documentary about how a town tries to reinvent itself amid the loss of their century-old GM plant and Wisconsin’s civil war over unions. It premiered on the PBS series Independent Lens in October of 2012 and aired again on Feb. 4th, 2013. The film’s storyline about corporate transparency inspired him to create “BizVizz“, a corporate accountability app and website that gives you instant access to companies’ tax, campaign finance and government subsidy records.
