❉ Channel 4’s hit political thriller Chimerica is coming to DVD on 20 May and We Are Cult have THREE COPIES up for grabs!
Adapted for TV by Olivier award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood from her own stage play, Channel 4’s ‘electrifying thriller’ (The Guardian) Chimerica is set to arrive on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International.
The powerful and timely four-part series explores the murky borders between fact and fiction, truth and censorship, political manipulation and personal sacrifice.
Award-winning actor Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle, Disobedience) stars as Lee Berger, the photographer behind the seminal Tank Man of Tiananmen Square photo, captured during the deadly 1989 protests in China. Now working as a dedicated photojournalist in America, accusations of fake news are levelled against him, and he sets out to reclaim his credibility by searching for the subject of his most famous picture.
Joining Lee on his frantic search are seasoned reporter Mel Kincaid (Cherry Jones – Transparent, The Handmaid’s Tale), corporate market researcher Tess Kendrick (Sophie Okonedo – Hotel Rwanda, The Hollow Crown) and cynical newspaper boss Frank Sams (F. Murray Abraham – Homeland, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Lee also enlists the help of an old friend, Chinese activist Zhang Lin (Terry Chen – Jessica Jones, Birth of the Dragon), who has troubles of his own, while Jimmy Wang (David Tse – Chimerica on stage) gets caught up in Lee’s grand quest. Can he uncover the elusive truth before it is too late!
