Featured New Title

Donald Trump: The Apprentice President (Java Films, 2016)

Since announcing his candidacy, Donald Trump is everywhere. To him, it seems that nothing is taboo and no policy too outlandish to embrace. Somehow, this billionaire candidate has become the champion of ordinary America, with supporters traveling hundreds of miles just to see him. To understand this phenomenon, we followed his campaign across the country for 200 days. In the beginning, he met his supporters in small rooms and the media was often absent. But quickly, he started packing rallies and the ‘Trump Show’ developed. On stage, he provoked immigrants and Muslims, women and minorities. But behind the scenes, he was tightly managing a slick media campaign and shutting out journalists. We go behind the image and talk to his childhood friends and billionaire buddies, as well as his critics and those who have had the experience of working with him. What would a Trump Presidency be like?

In May, we celebrate the 8 hour work day and the unity of working people.

Here are some relevant films.
