From Michael Kirk and the team behind "The Choice 2016" and "Divided States Of America" comes the inside story of Trump advisor Stephen Bannon’s war — with radical Islam, Washington and White House rivals.
“Bannon has long made it clear that blowing up the political establishment is his goal,” Kirk says. “Our new film is an investigation of who Bannon is, what shaped his worldview, how he got here, and his influence and footing within the Trump administration.”
Drawing on nearly 30 in-depth interviews with political insiders, Bannon’s former associates at Breitbart, authors, and journalists, the film tells the inside story of Bannon’s fight to deliver on Trump’s promises, with a confrontational style based on his personal crusade to dramatically transform America.
From how Bannon helped to orchestrate the rollout of Trump’s controversial travel ban, to his role in the power struggles and policy clashes that have defined the early days of Trump’s presidency, to his uncertain future within the administration, "Bannon’s War" is a meticulous portrait from one of the most acclaimed investigative teams in broadcast journalism.
