DVD Competition - Death of a President

DEATH OF A PRESIDENT – WINNER, INTERNATIONAL FILM CRITICS AWARD, TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL

“...packs a punch... knocks the breath out of the spectator... eerily convincing, Death Of A President succeeds in posing important questions about the Bush administration - and equally about the media and its role in the reshaping of society in our time.”The Guardian

“skilful docudrama... shrewdly blending archival footage with staged material... Layering the sense of dread with measured expertise... key personnel... believably impersonated by actors... the demonstration scenes, evidently staged on the streets of Chicago especially for the film, are amazingly realistic... Perhaps the film’s most remarkable... sequence is one in which Cheney is seen to be presiding over his predecessor’s state funeral... ingeniously edited... Technically the film is exceptional...”Variety

Years after the assassination of President George W. Bush in Chicago, an investigative documentary examines that as-yet-unsolved crime...

Using real life archive footage of George W. Bush, Death Of A President is a controversial conspiracy thriller with a unique premise, told in the style of a retrospective documentary, which offers a critique of the contemporary US political landscape.

This DVD features incredible extras that reveal the technical tricks used to make this ground breaking film possible.

Death of a President was shown on both More4 (9th October) and Channel 4 (16th October).
