A poster promoting the sci-fi movie, When Women Rule The World, features a decapitated head of President Donald Trump.
The poster made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival and features a bikini-clad woman named Maria Putin played by actress Anna Hera. In Hera’s hand is the decapitated head of what appears to be Donald Trump wearing a MAGA hat and the other appears to be some kind of zombie.
The tagline on the poster reads, “Meet the First lady of the Future with her Heads of State!”
Interestingly, the poster on the film’s official website features a man wearing a MAGA hat, but they have dark brown even black hair.
The film will mark the directorial debut for Sheldon Silverstein. He recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the movie. They described it as “a high-concept sci-fi satire with sociopolitical themes that align with movements like #MeToo and Time’s Up. and contain storylines that comment on toxic masculinity.”
Silverstein specifically described part of the plot:
“Donald Trump gets in a fight with Putin over who has the biggest penis, and he pushes a button that starts World War III. …It’s kind of crazy.”
Silverstein elaborated, “The film has a consciousness and has something to say about what’s going on in the world.”
But this movie isn’t just a political satire. Silverstein is clear that he holds disdain for Trump.
He describes his feelings towards President Trump, “He’s a moron and doesn’t care about the environment. It’s all about money to him.” He adds, “It’s a shame he got elected and [this movie] is a put-down on all of that.”
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Reality-show mogul Michael Bray and his Russian fiancé, Maria Putin—along with Susan Tolby, Michael’s tough associate producer, and Jon Dawson, brilliant nerd and social media guru—are driving to Las Vegas to begin production of their latest TV series, Showgirl Wars. They blunder into a time vortex and are transmitted to the future, 2121 A.D, after Trump has pushed the button, and World War Three and climate change have decimated life on earth.
The few women who have survived have completely separated from men, blaming them for all the destruction. The women live together in a women’s village lead by Auriana and protected by women warriors. The men live out in the desert.
What will happen when two couples from the present become entwined with man-hating Amazons and woman-hating men from the future?
Can they teach these new world women and men the value of love?
Can they make it back to the present in time to warn people about the future that could be?
When Women Rule the World answers these questions and provokes new ones.
Currently, the filmmaker is showing off the film in search of distribution partners. He claims,“Everybody seems to like it so far.” However, he did describe the process of find partners as “painful.”
The film stars Anna Hera, Brielle Gearson, Francisco DeCun, Aizhan Lighg, Chris Gooch, Victorya Brandart, Sandra Glagla, and Mantha Balourdou.
