Film Fest Gent - The Reagan Show

In the presence of: Sarah Van Leuven

"This docu - a terrifically entertaining and unnerving take on a presidency - does something that counts as a radical act these days: it looks back at history by letting historical footage speak for itself, without any talking heads to tell us what to think. By doing so, it stays both sober and light on its feet." (Vox)

UGent Morning Sessions
On Friday 20 October, the 9:30 screening of 'The Reagan Show' consists of a short introduction, the screening of the film itself and a discussion afterwards with Sarah Van Leuven, professor at Ghent University.
