a film by Susanne Becker and Daniel Pontzen
Two reporters travel across the US from New York to meet musicians, writers and Hollywood stars who live the resistance, as well as those who love Trump. They discover and document a current panorama of cultural America.
“The president is a disaster for journalists. He says that the press is the enemy of the American people – to destroy them. That comes directly from the dictator’s playbook. Mao, Stalin, even Hitler: first discredit the press, then everything else can follow. I believe that behind this is a strategy of creating a chaos in which everyone is so tired of distinguishing “fake news” from the reality that they stop paying attention to the news at all.” — Andrew Solomon, President, PEN America
