From groundbreaking documentarian Errol Morris comes a probing portrait of controversial Breitbart honcho and Trump advisor, Steven K. Bannon.

If Stephen K. Bannon were a fictional character, you'd have a hard time believing his narrative arc. He did stints as an investment banker and movie producer before steering the far-right media site Breitbart News as it swiftly moved from the fringe to the centre of American politics. As the chief executive of Donald Trump's campaign, he helped the candidate navigate several controversies that would have ended the career of any previous politician. He had a brief run in the White House as Trump's chief strategist. After being ousted, he continues to exert a powerful influence on right-wing ideologues in the US and abroad.

Errol Morris gives Bannon a documentary treatment comparable to his profiles of Donald Rumsfeld in THE UNKNOWN KNOWN and Robert McNamara in THE FOG OF WAR. An eye opening exploration of Bannon's theory of dharma and the effects it has had on US politics.
