Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States of America on November 8th, 2016 came as a surprise to many, especially for the media that had been predicting a Clinton win for months. What happened? Most political analysts blame Trump’s election on the rise of populism in turbulent times and a growing skepticism towards the ruling elite. A Campaign of Their Own tells a different history. By focusing on the defeat of Bernie Sanders from the point of view of his most fervent supporters, the film is a deep immersion into a populistpolitical movement that was neglected and even ignored by the media, and especially in Europe. By plunging into the subject, the filmmakers discovered an ever-widening fault line within the Democratic Party and the beginning of a nationwide resistance movement that continues today.
