Trumping Democracy I OFFICIAL TRAILER  from Cinema Libre Studio on Vimeo.

This explosive new documentary shows how Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States by winning three key states, a victory engineered by an ultra-conservative faction that quietly mapped its way to power using fake news, lies and psychometrics. Trumping Democracy follows the money to the reclusive multi-billionaire Robert Mercer. Using data of millions of Americans acquired from banks, credit companies, Facebook, Google, social security and more, another Mercer company, Cambridge Analytica, used tactics honed during the UK's Brexit campaign to identify voters deemed "most neurotic or worried," whom they believed could swing for Trump. In the days before the election, using a little-known Facebook feature, "dark posts", they deployed highly manipulative and personalized messages, which could be seen only by the user before disappearing. In the darkness of the web, democracy was trumped by data.

After the film we will have a discussion and expect to have the filmmaker via Skype from Paris.

Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice.
