WEINER, Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg
WEINER

The award winning documentary WEINER, which follows disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner’s campaign for mayor of New York City, has a new trailer.

The film which is directed by Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, opens in theaters on May 20.

Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down. Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize.
