In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film ACORN and the Firestorm, former journalism student Hannah Giles, who was at the center of a media frenzy around an undercover sting operation that aimed to take down community organization ACORN, meets Bertha Lewis, whose life and work was upended by the viral video Giles helped create. Giles expresses regret for how things were taken out of her control, but when they’re together in Washington D.C. do she and Lewis come to find any common ground?
