2017 USA 82 mins Dir: Luke Walker
PACmen is the first film to take us inside the secretive workings of the funding machine behind a US Presidential candidate. Believing Dr Ben Carson can save the Republican party, his funders raise millions, but his inexperience and constant gaffes see his figures nosedive. A fascinating and revealing look at the political landscape that led to Trump’s rise, as seen through the eyes of the men who backed ‘the other guy’.
‘A portrait of a political system that has gone hopelessly off the rails, PACmen is essential viewing’ Hollywood Reporter.
Director Luke Walker and Castlemaine based editor Bergen O’Brien will join us on stage for an audience Q&A after the screening.
