Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, Our New President is a jaw-dropping plunge down the fake news rabbit hole. A satire of Russian state media, this film from director Maxim Pozdorovkin (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer) looks at how Putin’s media apparatus covered Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Inventively editing clips from news programmes and internet videos that range from the absurd to the shocking, Our New President is a sobering portrait of modern-day propaganda.
