Synopsis

THE POWER OF NIGHTMARES

The Rise of the Politics of Fear

In an age disillusioned with optimistic political visions of the future, politicians have stumbled on a new force that can restore their power and authority – the fear of a hidden and organised web of evil which they can protect their people from.

These films show how that fantasy was created – and why – by telling an epic story that starts in Amer
