After Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, there have been a lot of rumours and assertions concerning Russia's role in the outcome. This documentary tackles the subject by compiling a collection of bizarre and disturbing footage from the Russian television coverage of the American election, where Trump is made to look like a benevolent demigod and Clinton a sickly murderer. It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry while watching OUR NEW PRESIDENT, but you're guaranteed to reflect on the importance of a free and independent press.
