Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of all Time
Ted Bourne, Mary Robertson, Banks Tarver
The journey of eccentric businessman Donald Trump from the Republican primaries to victory in the presidential election. What was behind the success of a man who few people believed in at first? The victory of Donald J. Trump in the presidential election came as a huge shock for many people, and not only in the US. The film is based on hundreds of hours of footage from the campaign, made by a trio of American television journalists for the popular show The Circus. The reporters benefited greatly from their unprecedented access to the candidate, and were able to capture the atmosphere of pre-election meetings and the furore surrounding Trump’s scandals. The film brings a unique message about the fundamental political change that has taken place in the United States, and one extravagant journey to unexpected triumph.
