"The most crucial and unique doc of the moment" - Time Out
Brimming with wit and political irony, The Reagan Show is an all-archival documentary that profiles Hollywood action man Ronald Reagan's greatest role - leader of the free world.
Teasing apart the spectacle at the heart of finger-on-the-button global diplomacy, the film follows Ronald Reagan's rivalry with the charismatic Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, tracing how the Communicator-in-Chief used his public relations chops to overcome Soviet mistrust, the objections of a sceptical press corps, and the looming threat of WWIII.
The screening on Friday 6th October will be followed by skype Q&A with co-director Pacho Velez.
The Reagan Show will be screening daily from Friday 6 October - please check back for further screenings.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
