Weiner (Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg | USA | 100 min.)

It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down.

Presented in Partnership with: Sundance Selects. In theaters on May 20th.

Josh Kriegman directed, shot, and produced Weiner, his first independent feature documentary. He has previously directed non-fiction film and television for PBS and MTV, among others. Prior to filmmaking, Kriegman worked as a political consultant and campaign advisor for local and national candidates—including for Congressman Weiner, years before the sexting scandal that led to his resignation.

Elyse Steinberg wrote, produced, and directed the acclaimed feature documentary The Trial of Saddam Hussein (PBS), an explosive exposé on what really happened at the former dictator’s trial. Her other credits include directing and producing for MTV, A&E, and the PBS series Need to Know, about prison reform and juvenile justice. Steinberg's latest project is the documentary film Weiner.
