US election warm-up with Weiner
With less than three weeks to the American election, Doc Lounge warms up with the award winning documentary Weiner, covering one of the latest years most discussed politcal scandals in the US. We kicked off with a Doc Lounge Live event and screening in Malmö this tuesday featuring a discussion on american politics with Sara Stenholm Pihl, journalist and host of US Election podcast for Swedish public radio.
Granted unfettered access to Weiner and his NY mayoral campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at a political machine as it breaks down. Critically acclaimed, the film have been described as "the Best Documentary About a Political Campaign Ever Made" (INDIEWIRE) and "Invigorating, thoroughly involving, and captivating."
