Jimmy McMillan + filmmakers in attendance!
The Disinformation Company presents:

Gothamist calls DAMN! an "instant blockbuster." It's the story of Rent is 2 Damn High founder Jimmy McMillan (a Vietnam veteran, black belt Karate master, former stripper and '70s soul singer), who became an overnight sensation after his appearance on the 2010 New York gubernatorial debate went viral, receiving over 2 million views in 24 hours and lifting Jimmy from political obscurity into the international spotlight.
Director Aaron Fisher-Cohen tracks McMillan on his unforgettable journey, making DAMN! the rare film that captures in real time the rise of a viral sensation and the media fixation that follows. It's a sometimes funny, sometimes dark look into what happens when mass media, politics and money all descend upon the life of one man.
72 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated. A Disinformation Company release.
