About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 CPH:DOX

With a colossal cigar dangling from the corner of his mouth, a libation in hand, and an unmistakable disdain for his political adversaries, Roger Stone emerges as the quintessential ally to Donald Trump. Revered as a right-wing powerbroker, Stone’s influential journey traces back to the era of President Nixon, a legacy inked onto his own back. In a film marked by unparalleled access, Christoffer Guldbrandsen captures the tumultuous final months of the Trump administration, centering on the heart of power and climaxing with the unprecedented storming of Congress.

“Guldbrandsen’s gripping political portrait … captures the combination of toxicity and raffish charm, duplicity and candour that makes Stone such an influential (and to liberal minds at least) dangerous figure on the US political landscape.”

—Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
