Pratt Film Society Screening: Our New President and Q&A with Director Maxim Pozdorovkin
February 13 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
A 2018 Sundance Award-winning archival film that explores the cult of Donald Trump through fake news and other methods of destabilized perception. Compiled from state-controlled political programming in Russia alongside congratulatory addresses to Trump from average Russians, the film shows Russia’s fawning over Trump as a carefully manufactured ideological project. “This comic documentary from Maxim Pozdorovkin, dives into Mr. Trump’s elevation to the White House through the lens of fake news and Russian propaganda.” – The New York Times
