#UNFIT: A Psychological Thriller
Director: Dan Partland | 84 min | 2020 | United States | NZ Premiere

"Is Donald Trump psychologically fit to be President?"

An eye-opening and shattering analysis of the behaviour, psyche, condition, and stability of US President, Donald J. Trump.

After years of empirical observation, for the first time ever, prominent mental health professionals go on camera, on the record, for the record to discuss, analyse, and conduct a science-based examination of the behaviour, psyche, condition, and stability of President Trump.
#UNFIT examines his effect on America's citizenry, culture and institutions.

Equally crucial to understanding the Trump phenomenon is understanding his support base. In a riveting discussion, the film’s mental health experts theorize on the phenomenon of Trump’s hardened base of supporters, how and why they continue to support him, and why so many of them dig in, deny, deflect, and otherwise mirror his actions.

Their analysis is rooted in science.

Though it has undeniable political implications, '#UNFIT' is 'not' politically motivated; it does not advocate for policy issues or take a stance on matters of state. The film is also 'not' intended to offer a formal diagnosis nor recommend treatment.

Their analysis is rooted in science.

Using anecdotal references, the filmmakers connect the dots between Trump's behaviour and what they observe to be conditions of paranoia, anti-social personality disorder, narcissism and sadism. These traits are collectively termed Malignant Narcissism, often referred to as the "quintessence of evil".

A malignant narcissist is grandiose, with an inflated sense of accomplishment, and an excessive need for admiration: boastful, hypersensitive to criticism, arrogant, and envious.

He is always ready to raise hostility levels, and uses deceit and manipulation. He transgresses social norms, and lacks moral conscience. He is preoccupied with perceived disloyalty, bears grudges, is quick to blame others and prone to conspiracy theories. He dehumanises people he perceives as weak, and takes glee in their misfortune.
