About the Film

In this Sundance Special Jury Award-winning film, Maxim Pozdorovkin stitches together found footage of Russian propaganda about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to craft a simultaneously humorous and deeply disturbing cautionary tale on manipulative messaging with global implications. State-run news agencies employ innuendo and half-truths to prey on the base instincts of those already prone to suspicion. Our New President both illustrates and indicts in a critique that’s extremely relevant in these times.
