Trumping Democracy

Director Thomas Huchon presents this unique film exploring the role of Cambridge Analytica in the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote.

Donald Trump’s victory was engineered by ultra-conservative billionaire Robert Mercer. Buying Breitbart News, he inserted Steve Bannon into the campaign. Another Mercer company, Cambridge Analytica, micro-targeted the American voters most likely to swing for Trump in the final days of the campaign, they deployed ‘dark posts’ and manipulative Facebook ads seen only by the user before disappearing.
