synopsis

You heard it here first: after visiting the relics of a mysterious Russian princess, Hillary Clinton was cursed with incurable diseases and misfortune of all sorts! At least that is what the state-controlled television channels in Putin’s Russia say. That is where director Maxim Pozdorovkin (Pussy Riot, The Notorious Mr. Bout, both presented at One World Romania) found most of his footage. Exclusively stitched together from segments produced by or within the state media in Russia, this mesmerising film traces the rise of Donald Trump from the distorted, at times absurdly falsified, perspective of a propaganda system subordinated to a unique center of power. Putin’s dystopia speaks here for itself—but, more alarmingly, for America and the rest of the world.
