At Realscreen Washington 2017, Passion Distribution is delighted to announce it will handle the distribution rights for documentary The Boy Who Tried To Kill Trump (1 x 60’).
The Boy Who Tried To Kill Trump (airing on BBC 3 as The Brit Who Tried To Kill Trump) is a compelling and fascinating perspective on one the biggest international news stories of the last year. In June 2016, 20-year-old British man Michael Sandford was arrested at a Donald Trump rally, after trying to take a police officer’s gun to shoot the then republican presidential nominee. Michael immediately found himself at the centre of a media storm and at the mercy of America’s notoriously harsh justice system. How did a young, middle class boy from suburban England, who suffers from Asperger’s, end up thousands of miles from home? What drove him to attempt to kill one of the most powerful men in the world?
This programme follows Michael's family as they travel to the US for his sentencing, unsure of when they might see him again. Set against the backdrop of Trump's remarkable rise to the White House, the documentary explores Michael's complex past while using exclusive eye witness interviews and never-before-seen archive to piece together the elaborate assassination plot and attempt to find out why he did it.
The Boy Who Tried To Kill Trump is produced by Firecracker Films for BBC 3 and directed by Guy Simmonds (The Secret Life of Human Pups). The documentary was made available in the UK on BBC iplayer on Friday 20th January 2017.
