After Steve Bannon left the White House in 2017, he tried to turn his bombastic nationalism into a global movement and let progressive documentarian Alison Klayman follow him for more than a year — from Arizona to Italy, Texas to France.
The result is “The Brink,” a fly-on-the-wall, cinéma vérité film coming to theaters on March 29, and being screened in Washington, D.C. tomorrow.
A keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests wherever he goes, feeding the powerful myth on which his survival relies.
“The Brink” follows Bannon through the 2018 U.S. midterm elections and shedding light on his efforts to mobilize and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections.
