    Only in America . With election fever gripping  the nation Mongrel Media perfectly times the release of Weiner. Everything wrong with in your face politics gets perfectly exploded in this jaw-dropping documentary now unfolding in an exclusive showing at the Vancity Theatre.

    If you think the antics of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump are a bit off putting he’s got nothing on the once upon a time promising career of famed (?) New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. To add further fuel to the fire the reason why this film is so damn interesting, aside from the rather tasteless claim to fame of this would be mayor of the Big Apple, revolves around the woman caught in the middle, Huma Abedin.  At the time that an unbelievable scandal broke that gripped not only New York but all North America and the rest of the world was the fact that Huma was the number one aide to then U.S. senator Hillary Clinton. Just one step away from the possible President of the United States the Weiners found themselves caught up In a scandal like no other,

    Nothing gets the public’s attention like sex. And in this, the media centre of the universe the press were thirsting for blood  – and they were handed the story of a lifetime when the then rising political star was caught, quite literally with his pants down. Put  anything on the Internet and it can last forever. So when news and photos of the good Congressmen sending underwear photos ( and more) to women broke  it  sent his campaign and political ambitions a tumbling down.

    Up close and personal we get as cameras follow Weiner as he makes a run for  the Mayor’s chair . Quite insightful at all times this smart documentary lets you see and here Weiner in his own words fight and struggle for his career. How he and his wife fare through this spotlight is truly a sight to behold. For tickets or more information go to www.viff.org
