Documentary Night: THE BRINK

DIRECTED BY: Alison Klayman



Please join us for a post-film Q&A with producer Marie Therese Guirgis


When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle, known for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post — though some say he still has a direct line to the White House — he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. THE BRINK follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize 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.


Marie Therese Guirgis has produced numerous documentary films including ON HER SHOULDERS, BEFORE THE FLOOD, and AUTHOR: THE JT LEROY STORY. In addition to producing critically acclaimed, award-winning documentary features, she worked for many years in film distribution.
