Our New President

Contemporary Lives

(Stati Uniti / 2018 / 77’)

 In 1997 Hillary Clinton, in her trip to Siberia, visited the mummy of the Ukok Princess. Unaware of the danger, the First Lady was cursed: for her it was the beginning of a series of unfortunate events, from the Lewinsky scandal to her political defeat against Trump. Does it seem crazy? It is not for one of the major public broadcasters in Russia. Our New President tells the propaganda presented by media about Clinton and Trump during their election campaign in 2016. Through the fake news scandal and the hackers’ threats, the film digs into broadcasting station’s archives and Russian audience’s social media, painting a satirical portrait about free press in the age of the Web 2.0.
