‘Autocratic for the People: An Unpresidented Series of Star-Spangled Satires’ Screenings at IFC (Through Sunday, April 2)

    Date: 01/13/2017 - 04/02/2017

    Time: All Day

    Location: IFC Center (323 6th Ave., Manhattan)

    Celebrating American cinema’s long history of laughing in the face of adversity and of mocking the powerful, the 12-film series showcases classic and recent political satires. From populist bombast to fake news, post-truth moments, stolen campaign secrets, racial scapegoating and even nuclear scares, the program revisits some of the unexpected themes of a contentious, norm-shattering and at times shocking election season. Together, the lineup offers blue (in both senses) New Yorkers some sorely needed levity—and perhaps some sources for strength—as they prepare for the uncertainty facing them with the prospect of a truly unprecedented President.
