Synopsis

Mind-blowing excursion into the realm of fake news: the film focuses on the Russian news coverage of US presidential campaign from 2016. Grotesque attacks on Clinton portrayed as a kind of zombie from outer space are accompanied by accolades for Trump: sexy and reliable strong man – just like Putin. Pozdorovkin combines clips from TV with behind-the-scenes look at the propaganda machine itself – from the highest echelons of power to rank and file Internet trolls.
