“This is the worst… doing a documentary on my scandal…”

That above quote is from Anthony Weiner, in the first trailer for an award-winning documentary that chronicles the strangely fascinating career of the former New York congressman.

The new trailer brings to light what happened to everyone’s favourite Tweeter after his fall from grace in 2011. Five years later, he seemed to be making his triumphant return and allowed his campaign for New York City Mayor to be filmed by directors Josh Kreigman and Elyse Steinberg. Unfortunately for him, the campaign was derailed by another scandal, but the directors continued filming. Kreigman and Steinberg’s work won the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. You can check out the trailer below:

Named Weiner – of course – the film will be released in theatres on May 20, and available on VOD the week after. Will you be watching it?
