The Mad World of Donald Trump (2016)

5.0 ·
1

Matt Frei enters the colourful and mad world of presidential hopeful, Donald Trump - whose meteoric political rise comes amid one of the most controversial political campaigns America has ever seen. Trump’s plans to ban Muslims from entering the States and to build a wall to keep illegal Mexican immigrants out have outraged many in the States and beyond.

Discover the man behind the brand, from the multiple divorces, the bankruptcies, the public insults aimed at women who crossed him to claims of bullying Scottish residents who stood in the way of his golf resort. It’s the all-consuming story of a privileged multi-billionaire tycoon who has now decided to use his considerable resource to become the most powerful person on the planet

Frei is also on the campaign trail, meeting those who oppose Trump as well as his fervent supporters who believe he is the epitome of American success and will deliver on his promise to “Make America Great Again”. Leading the polls for the Republican presidential nomination Frei asks if “The Donald”, as he is known, can really go all the way and make it to the White House.

Presenting the film is Matt Frei, who says: Whether or not ‘the Donald’ goes on to win his party's nomination or indeed the White House his dominance in the polls and his bare knuckle style encapsulate America's journey from hope and change to fear and loathing… He is a one man herd who thrives on trampling over America's most sacred sensibilities knowing that the outrage of New York, Washington and Hollywood only swells his support amongst Americans who feel left behind and unheard”.

Films For Action is a community-powered, digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Although we started out hosting community film screenings in the beginning and did so for many years, our digital library eventually became our primary focus. 

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated 4,000 articles.

“Independent media is dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. And when you hear someone speaking from their own experience - whether it's a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother or an uncle in Afghanistan or a refugee in the Calais refugee camp - it changes you. It breaks the sound barrier. It challenges the stereotypes and the caricatures that fuel the hate groups. You may not agree with what you hear - I mean, how often do we even agree with our family members? - but you begin to understand where they're coming from. That understanding is the beginning of peace. I really do think that the media can be the greatest force for peace on Earth. Instead, all too often, it is wielded as a weapon of war. We have to take the media back.” - Amy Goodman, Place to B at COP21
