This film is perhaps even more apropos now than it was three festivals ago when few imagined Donald Trump could become president. Many are still trying to figure out how that happened – and Jen Senko’s dad may be a key to unlocking the mystery.
In this fascinating personal story, she examines her father’s transformation from a life-long, apolitical Democrat to an angry, right-wing fanatic. Her film isn’t just about one family slowly losing a loved one to ugly political extremism. It’s a densely packed examination of how shrewd strategists have engineered how right-wing think tanks, advocacy groups and media outlets together achieved what the left has refused, or been unable, to do: manipulate the minds of America. Documentary. 90 min. USA (part of “Facing Fascism” program)
