We told you about the development of this project last year and now you can peek at a teaser clip of DAMN!, a documentary following the media sensation Jimmy McMillan.

The film, which is currently traveling the festival circuit, was directed by Aaron Fisher-Cohen.

Synopsis:

DAMN! is the the story of Rent is 2 Damn High founder Jimmy McMillan, a Vietnam veteran, black belt Karate master, former stripper, and 70’s soul singer, who became an overnight sensation after his appearance on the 2010 New York gubernatorial debate went viral, receiving over 2 million views in 24 hours and lifting Jimmy from political obscurity into the international spotlight.

In what becomes an unforgettable journey, DAMN! is the only film to ever capture the rise of a viral sensation and the media fixation that follows as it all unfolds. It's a sometimes funny and sometimes dark look into what happens when mass media, politics, and money all descend upon the life of one man.
