Wilders, the Movie
Both nationally and internationally, Geert Wilders manages to stir up discussion, anger and admiration. Some call him a racist, others adore him. At the latest elections (June 2010), his Partij voor de Vrijheid (PVV) clinched a sweeping victory. Filmmakers Joost van der Valk and Mags Gavan got fascinated; who is Geert Wilders, who are the people that vote for him and why is he so successful? In Wilders, the Movie, the filmmakers investigate the motives of Wilders and his supporters. Who feels attracted to Wilders' views and what are the implications of the PVV's growth for the Netherlands? Through voters, fellow party members, colleagues and an inquiry into Wilders' past, the filmmakers try to fathom the Wilders phenomenon. Wilders, the Movie is not a political pamphlet, nor a moralistic or demonising statement; it is a portrait of Geert Wilders and his hitherto invisible electors.
