One of the best movies ive ever seen.
Death of a President is a 2006 British mockumentary about the assassination of George W. Bush, the 43rd U.S. President, on 19 October 2007 in Chicago, Illinois. By means of actors, archival film footage and computer-generated special effects, the assassination is the thematic beginning of serious discussions about civil disobedience, racial profiling, the U.S. Government’s reduction of civil liberties, newssensationalism as agitational propaganda and the theory of Just War.
The premiere showing was at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival on 10 September 2006, and in the UK, it was broadcast on More4on 9 October, then on Channel 4 on 19 October 2006, a year to the day before the assassination date in the film. It was broadcast in Finland on 18 October 2007, the assassination date’s eve.
