Filmmaker Errol Morris presented his latest film, American Dharma, at the 75th Venice International Film Festival. The documentary finds the director attempting to understand the controversial figure of Steve Bannon. In this interview he shares with us his thoughts on the man and the current rise of populism – even questioning the term itself – and more.

American Dharma: No stranger to interviewing some of the most controversial figures of the day, Errol Morris turns his lens on Steve Bannon, questioning him about his beliefs, current feelings about Trump, and films that shaped Bannon’s understanding of the world. Morris proposes that for those who disagree with Bannon, ignoring him is the most dangerous course of action.
