The Brink (15)

Steve Bannon

When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle 

The Brink is a fly-on-the-wall documentary that follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilise and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections.

To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself — as he has many times before — this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement. Keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests wherever he goes, feeding the powerful myth on which his survival relies.
