About the Film:
When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle. Unconstrained by an official post, he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement.
The Brink is an engaging and enraging, disturbing and highly revealing film that follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections. A keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests, feeding the powerful myth on which his survival relies.
There will be a post-screening Q&A with Alison Klayman.
