The feature-length documentary film INFLUENCE charts the recent
advancements in weaponized communication by investigating the rise
and fall of the world’s most notorious public relations and reputation
management firm: the British multinational Bell Pottinger.
[Influence] is the kind of story that makes you question everything, because it suggests
that we now live in a time when the very texture of our lives can be defined, designed and manipulated by powerful forces. We may think of ourselves as smarter and savvier,
but the machine of dreams isn’t done with us yet.
