Our New President
Hilarious and horrifying in equal measure, Our New President is a satirical portrait of how Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, through the lens of Russian propaganda. Director Maxim Pozdorovkin (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer) mashes up the output of meme-wielding YouTube trolls, kooky comrades and the conspiracy- peddling Russia Today to create a manic alternate-universe view of the 2016 election, alien to Western eyes. Hillary Clinton and the curse of the Siberian mummy princess is just the start: there's a lot more to discover down the rabbit hole of Putin's propaganda machine.
