The Hunting of the President: Redux

D: Harry Thomason, Nichlas Perry | USA | 101 min | World Premiere

We currently live in one of the most tumultuous political climates of the nation’s history, a climate where politicians can be toppled on a whim. Using new interviews, and shocking revelations from both sides of the political spectrum, Harry Thomason and Nickolas Perry’s 2015 update of their original 2004  documentary based on the best-selling book by Gene Lyons and Joe Conason offers a glimpse at the genesis of extreme partisan vendettas.  It explores the myths and truths behind the twenty year campaign to destroy the Clinton legacy, with the footage from the original version seeming more relevant today than a decade ago. The Hunting of the President Redux offers a gallery of defeated politicians, disappointed office seekers, extremist pamphleteers, wealthy eccentrics, zany private detectives, religious fanatics and die-hard segregationists, all chiming in discord.  An alarming treatise on the political power of the media and personal interests.

Attending: director Harry Thomason, subject Susan McDougal
