HBO has released the trailer for Alex Gibney’s upcoming documentary Agents of Chaos which takes a look at the Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The two-part series will premiere on HBO and HBO Max September 23rd.
AGENTS OF CHAOS, a two-part documentary directed by Emmy® and Academy Award Winner Alex Gibney (“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” “The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley”) will debut WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), with part two airing the following evening at the same time, ahead of the November elections. The film is a product of years of reporting on Russian interference in the 2016 election. With never-before-seen footage inside the Russian troll farms, and videos unearthed from the Russian deep web, the film digs deep into the sophisticated plans to undermine democracy, raising the alarm for the American public, but also proving that these “agents of chaos” weren’t Russians alone; they were also key players in the United States who, through venality, corruption or circumstance, furthered Putin’s goals, with a vulnerable and unsuspecting American public as their target.
