I’m watching TV with my mom, I managed to steal my laptop off of her for a while so I can blog about this show I’m watching. It’s called Death of a President
“Set in the near future, the drama imagines the assassination of George W Bush and examines America’s reaction to it.
The feature-length film is shockingly real and uses archive footage and documentary techniques to great effect.
It is October 2007 and US foreign and domestic policies have polarised the country’s electorate. Arriving in Chicago to make a speech to business leaders, the President is confronted by a massive anti-war demonstration. Unperturbed, Bush goes ahead with the visit. But as he leaves the venue he is gunned down by a sniper.
While a nation mourns, the hunt for his killer swings into action and the state apparatus tries to make sense of this horrific attack on the administration. The investigation soon focuses on a Syrian-born man, Jamal Abu Zikri.
Death of a President is a gripping drama that explores the administration’s responses to 9/11 and is inspired by the real-life experiences of those caught up in the ‘War on Terror’.”
I’m actually enjoying it! I couldn’t help by laugh when he got shot though (yes that’s evil!) but it’s an interested TV Show….. it would be freaky if it did happen this time next year!
Anyhoooo back to watching TV & doing one of my MSc projects at the same time
