Al Jazeera | Beppe's Blog
Aljazeera - People & Power
Director: Anson Hartford
Producer: Matan Rochlitz
February 2011

Beppe Grillo is giving Italy's political system the biggest shake-up in decades. His blog is the 8th most read in the world, and through it he has built a following of millions of Italians who are all calling for change. Remarkably, Grillo is not a politician, he is a comedian.


With exclusive access to Beppe Grillo and some of Italy's leading journalists, this documentary tells Grillo's remarkable story and shines a light on the incestuous relationship between Politics and the Media in Italy.
