Alternately amuses, shocks and enrages, revealing concerted Russian propaganda efforts, backed by Vladimir Putin's state-controlled media, that range from the comically paranoid to the scarily sophisticated.

Our New President merely scratches the surface, and in its own weird way, comes to embody the plague of shallow spectacle it purports to fight against.

In general, the tone is playful and satirical, making use of a quick montage that adapts to the information frenzy and the desire for immediacy that we are currently experiencing. [Full review in Spanish]
