WetbackThe Ironweed Film Club is a new, politically-oriented DVD "distribution program" that hopes to "create social change" through movies. Members of the club pay about $15 every four weeks and receive a new feature film (along with shorts) each month. To this point, none of the films on club's slate have received theatrical distribution, but it is the hope of Ironweed founder Adam Werbach that the club might help get these independent films into theaters by creating word-of-mouth. With its interest in independent films, shorts, and conveying a message to its audience, Ironweed is reminiscent of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, albeit with a different political orientation.

The first film, which will go out to members next month, is Wetback, Arturo Perez Torres' multiple-awarding winning documentary "following two Nicaraguan immigrants to the U.S."
