From 2004 to 2016, Steve Bannon directed nine feature-length documentaries.
Bannon, who professes open admiration for the aesthetics of Leni Riefenstahl, believed for a time that his films, which bear dire titles like “Battle for America,” “Fire From the Heartland,” and “District of Corruption,” would catapult him to prominence as the right-wing’s cinematic answer to Michael Moore.
Diving into his oeuvre is not unlike experiencing the last decade’s-worth of popular political documentaries but through a conservative looking-glass.
