A development trailer for "The Association" by Andrew Wahlquist.
"About: The Association is an upcoming feature film about an innocent
family who rebels against the strict rules of their obsessive
Homeowners Association. What follows is an epic battle that turns
their American dream into a suburban nightmare."
"Produced in 2006 as a low-budget taste of the style and story of The
Association, director Andrew Wahlquist led a small crew and volunteer
cast staring Michael Hitchcock (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) to create
10 scenes from the script as a showcase teaser for the packaging and
development of the feature."
According to Mr. Wahlquist in a personal e-mail to me:
Andy Wahlquist's project is not related to other movies with the same title:
The Association (2008) "Mock reality-show following the political struggles of a Homeowners Association"
The Association (2011) "The residence of Harker Heights suspect something is not quite right with their homeowners association."

-- especially what I view to be the frustrating hypocrisy and/or obliviousness of conservatives and libertarians regarding the rights of individual American home owners --
