This unique film allows you to experience first-hand the propaganda fed on a daily basis by the Kremlin to its own people, who are willing to believe the most absurd conspiracy theories, such as those about why Donald Trump should become president of the United States.

There has been a great deal of talk about Russian propaganda practices in recent years, but few know how it really works. This unprecedented documentary is based on hundreds of clips from Russian television broadcasts. Together, they form a story about how the Kremlin-dominated media has convinced ordinary Russians that Hillary Clinton is a danger to the whole world, and that Donald Trump is its saviour. Lies, manipulation, distortion – all of these tools rapidly spread from screens like an infection that can be prevented only with great difficulty.
