VIDEO: Student’s Documentary Stirs Controversey

KSAL StaffApril 29, 2015

A high-school student’s documentary, “Where the Buffaloed Roam: An Ode to the Kansas Budget,” is raising a stir.

The 51-minute movie was featured this month at the Kansas City FilmFest in Missouri. Released in February by Louisburg High School student Carson Tappan, the film was just posted Sunday on YouTube.

The film highlights major income tax cuts that Republican Gov. Sam Brownback championed in 2012 and 2013 to help stimulate the economy. The cuts have contributed to massive revenue shortfalls.

President Dave Trabert of the conservative Kansas Policy Institute wrote a critical blog post about the film this month. He wrote that it “merely presents a political viewpoint that doesn’t let facts get in the way of the story it wants to tell.”
