‘Weiner’ at IDFA

On November 19 and 20 the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam will screen the documentary Weiner. In this fly-on-the-wall portrait Anthony Weiner is followed during his run for mayor of New York, after he resigned as Congressman for posting inappropriate pictures on Twitter. During this campaign, new evidence of Weiner’s sexting becomes available, leading to a major crisis. Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife and close aide to Hillary Clinton, keeps supporting him, although they recently separated. The documentary is an intimate portrait, with almost unlimited access to the campaign headquarters. John Adams Director Tracy Metz will conduct a short Q&A with the director after the screening on Saturday. For tickets and more information click here.
