Charisma: The Will to Power explores the confluence of factors that leads to charismatic status. The underlying thematic question -- how do we choose our leaders? – makes it especially timely. The film looks back on a broad spectrum of historical figures, from Christ to President Barack Obama. Interviews with historians, philosophers, evolutionary psychologists and political scientists enhance our understanding of this mysterious and bottomless subject.
