The satirical art project by Maxim Pozdorovkin, Our New President, is a unique report of the Russian media’s coverage of the last American elections. It consists only of footage from Russian television stations and provides a non-Russian audience with a sneak peek into the workings of Russian journalism. This will be the Dutch premiere of this very current film!
Every month from May until December, IMPAKT and Cinema ‘t Hoogt will organise a film in the series Post-truth Cinema. By means of documentaries and feature films the programme takes a look at our current political landscape. The films and speakers will talk about aspects such as the influence of fake news, the manipulation of social media, political brainwashing and what happens in other countries, like China or Russia.
The film will be introduced by journalist and former Russia correspondent for the NRC newspaper, Laura Starink. After the screening she will discuss the film with Impakt director Arjon Dunnewind.
