Delve into the deep web and Russian troll farms and discover what really happened in the 2016 U.S. election in this documentary.
Alex Gibney brings us Agents of Chaos, a two-part documentary exploring the labyrinth of Russian government intervention in the United States presidential election, won by Donald Trump.
Featured heavily is the legal probe carried out in 2017 by former FBI Director Robert Mueller as United States special counsel. This probe investigated suspicions of international conspiracy and of course, electoral fraud. It was alleged that members of the Trump presidential campaign had been in contact with agents of Vladimir Putin in order to obtain certain illegal information and engage in smear campaigns. It was said that Russian hackers had hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers, the email account of John Podesta, head of the Hillary Clinton campaign; disseminated fake news on social media; and penetrated the electoral systems of a good number of states.
On this, the documentary features interviews with Andrew Weissmann, one of the attorneys on Mueller's team; former FBI Agent Andrew McCabe; former CIA Director John Brennan; and Trump Campaign Advisor Carter Page, among others. All of this is accompanied by never-before-seen images of Russian troll farms and compromising videos from the deep web.
Alex Gibney is an experienced documentary maker and Oscar and Emmy winner. In 2008 he took home the Best Documentary Oscar for Taxi to the Dark Side (2007), an investigation that exposed the torture and cruel interrogation practices of the U.S. Army during the war in Afghanistan. He won Emmys in 2015 for the documentary Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief (2015) on HBO and in 2013 for Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God (2012). Also for HBO, he directed The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019), a film on the massive fraud behind Theranos, the company that promised to revolutionize the world with its new blood testing method. With Agents of Chaos, Gibney once again offers an in-depth investigation into the abuse of power and corruption in both public and private organizations in his own country.
Agents of Chaos coming September 29th only on HBO and HBO GO.
