Controversial “Clinton Cash” gets cinematic peak at Cannes Film Festival

Just days before the Democratic National Convention gets underway in Philadelphia, American politics will be on display across the pond at the Cannes Film Festival with the May 16 premiere of “Clinton Cash.”

The controversial film – based on the 2015 bestseller by Peter Schweizer – portrays Bill and Hillary Clinton as “a greedy tag team who used the family’s controversial Clinton Foundation and her position as secretary of state to help billionaires make shady deals around the world with corrupt dictators, all while enriching themselves to the tune of millions,” according to MSNBC who got an exclusive first look at the hour-long film.

“The allegations are as brazen as they are controversial: What other film at Cannes would come up with a plot that involves Russian President Vladimir Putin wrangling a deal with the alleged help of both Clintons, a Canadian billionaire, Kazakhstan mining officials and the Russian atomic energy agency – all of which resulted in Putin gaining control of 20 percent of all the uranium in the U.S.?” wrote MSNBC’s Dana Kennedy.

The film was produced by Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News, and features Schweizer as the narrator.

The Clinton campaign has denounced the book as a smear project but did not comment on the film.

The film opens in the U.S. on July 24.

“Clinton Cash” Official Trailer

For twenty years I've been reporting what my corporate overlords told me. Now I'm free to write for you, for me and for a better country for my children. After a lifetime of watching career politicians greedily consume everything within arms reach I have now seen change in the form of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. His message resonates with me and I feel most Americans would embrace it if they knew more about him and his policies. That isn't going to happen through mainstream media. That's why independent media like The Bern Report was born. To get the world out, unfiltered by our corporate masters. Because we have none. I'm looking forward to this new journey and hope the country is ready and willing to embrace true change.
