Our New President

Having directed the acclaimed, Sundance prize winning, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer (Revelation, 2013) Maxim Pozdorovkin turns his attention to the Russian media. Primarily looking at the way in which it presents US politics, the film offers a vertiginous glimpse at Russian State TV. Created from a mix of clips from TV and home video, Our New President is a bizarre, giddy combination that plays with a combination of fake news, conspiracies, and much more, creating a vast and complex picture of contemporary Russian State TV and the people who watch it.

Our New President is collage documentary that focuses on the power of the media through carefully selected clips and highly considered editing, presenting an image of Russian State Television that will leave viewers reeling.

“A revealing documentary looks at Donald Trump in the scary funhouse mirror of Russian media. It's a lot like the fake news here, only more so”. - Variety
