Originally produced by Gravitas Ventures LLC in 2017.
An award-winning documentary about the original performer-president's role of a lifetime. Teasing apart the spectacle at the heart of finger-on-the-button global diplomacy, the film follows Ronald Reagan's rivalry with charismatic Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Chock full of wit and political irony, and told solely through 1980s network news and videotapes created by the Reagan administration itself, THE REAGAN SHOW explores Reagan's made-for-TV approach to politics as he faced down the United States' greatest rival.
