This torrent includes an interview with the original political consultants.
Produced by Showtime Networks, I believe it never aired in theaters.
plot (from IMDB):
Early in 1996, three Republican campaign operatives take a job in secret assisting
Boris Yeltsin's reelection. Once in Moscow, they find he's polling at 6 percent
with the election a few months away. While Joe Shumate wants to go home,
George Gorton and Dick Dresner vote to stay.
First, they must get someone's attention; they succeed finally with Yeltsin's daughter.
Then it's polling, focus groups, messages and spin. Even as Yeltsin's numbers go up,
the trio are unsure who hired them and whether Yeltsin's allies have a different
plan in mind than election victory. When the going gets toughest, it's Gorton who
puts a spin on our stake: democracy and capitalism must win.
