"INFLUENCE is a profile of the morally slippery British reputation manager, Lord Timothy Bell. Bell climbed his way to the heights of global power, first spinning Margaret Thatcher into the "Iron Lady", then working for the successors of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet; later branching out into France, Africa, Russia, the Middle East and elsewhere. Bell co-founded the legendary PR firm Bell Pottinger, which quickly earned a reputation for representing the most unsavory characters, regardless of the circumstances. In tracking Bell's extraordinary life, the film examines the politicization of modern communication over the last 40 years-the winding journey from advertising to algorithms; television to Twitter.
