It all begins with Hillary Clinton and the curse of the Siberian mummy princess… A trip down the rabbit hole of fake news, Our New President is a satire about the Russian media and its take on American politics. Moving between Kremlin-controlled network news and colorful reinterpretations of this news diet by average Russians, the film charts Trump’s election using footage produced by Putin’s propaganda machine.
