"Four years ago, I began my campaign for President of the United States as the first openly gay candidate to run from either major political party," said Karger. "We began our historic campaign with a Karger family brunch at Cantine in beautiful Peterborough.  Now, four years later, we've come back with FRED.  It's wonderful to return New Hampshire and travel all over the state during our nine days of screenings. John did an incredible job of capturing the excitement, disappointments and fun of our 2 1/2 year campaign."

When Fred Karger began running for President of the United States in February 2010 filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel was at his side. John spent the next two years documenting his historic campaign as the first openly gay candidate for president from either major political party. Now a one hour documentary, FRED is out and gives audiences an real inside look at the roller coaster campaign. Follow Fred from the towns of New Hampshire to the Iowa State Fair.  Watch as he takes on Fox News and Mitt Romney. See the reaction from voters to any openly gay GOP candidate as the campaign travels from New Orleans to New York, from Gay Pride Parades to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Watch Fred as he fights for inclusion in the debates, takes on his opponents and campaigns to let lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans know that anything is possible. It’s an hour of history that will make you laugh, cry and guaranteed to delight all audiences.
