Directed by Luke Walker
PACmen is the first film to document the inside workings of a Super-PAC, taking us behind the scenes to answer one of the lingering questions of America’s strangest election…why did Ben Carson run for president?
This observational documentary follows the men behind the Super-PACs that drafted Dr Carson to run.
Believing Carson can save the Republican Party, they successfully persuade him to run, raise millions of dollars and catapult him to the top of the polls.
However, Carson’s political inexperience soon begins to show, and his constant media gaffes make it increasingly difficult to raise funds. As Carson’s poll numbers nosedive they watch in horror as Trump inexplicably hijacks their anti-establishment movement.
As the campaign descends into chaos the PACmen increasingly begin to wonder…did they pick the wrong savior?
A fascinating look at politics in the age of Super-PACs and the landscape that lead to Trump’s rise, through the eyes of the men who backed “the other guy”.
