If Errol Morris thought he was about to get an easy ride from what Steve Bannon calls the "Hollywood liberal elite" with his new film "America Dharma," he had another think coming. Usually post-screening press conferences at film festivals are love-ins, with the auteur gently cradled by reporters and critics after bringing their baby into the world.Journalists after journalist pummeled the king of the confessional documentary for giving U.S. President Donald Trump's former strategist and alt-right hero a platform, queuing up to accuse him of falling into the far-right's trap.The film was shown on the same day as Paul Greengrass' highly emotional "22 July," the story of far-right terrorist Anders Breivik's massacre of 77 people in Norway in 2011, giving an added piquancy to the debate.Furthermore, Bannon arrived in Venice at the center of a storm of protest over his inclusion as a speaker at the New Yorker festival.Morris, too, came out fighting against the "hostile questioning" of his film.
