Michael Moore Releases Trailer For Anti-Trump Film "Fahrenheit 11/9"

Michael Moore Releases Trailer For Anti-Trump Film

Moore also speaks to David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who has, in the wake of the incident, become a high profile activist against growing gun violence in the US. The scene in which an incensed Moore sprays water from Flint onto the home of MI governor Rick Snyder stands out in particular, made all the more meaningful as Moore himself is a Flint native.

Fahrenheit 11/9 will showcase a detailed look at the 2016 United States presidential election, and Donald Trump's first year of presidency. I have a feeling it's just going to come off as more noise, even if it ends up being good. November 9th was, of course, the day the Associated Press called the election for Trump.

Flint, Michigan's man-made, lead-poisoned water crisis began in 2014 and resulted in strict regulations being enacted at a state level in 2018, with the water's lead levels finally dropping below federal safety levels in 2017.

Fahrenheit 11/9 is expected to be a pseudo-sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11, the popular Moore documentary that examined the impact of George W. Bush presidency's on the world. It's in theaters September 21.

Given how so much of Donald Trump's presidency is being played out on screens and online, it seems nearly pointless at this stage to have a documentary on him when the story hasn't even finished playing itself out yet.

So, yeah, turns out Kim Kardashian is not best pleased with her youngest daughter's name, despite it being just over half a year since she picked it.

"F*ck hope", Moore said.

It's the latest offering from Moore aimed directly at the effect of Trump, following on from his filmed one-man talk Michael Moore in TrumpLand and his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender.

He added that: "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out". We don't need hope. "He's taking a much bigger perspective on American politics", Thom Powers, the docs programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, where Moore will premiere the film, told the Los Angeles Times.

Fahrenheit 11/9 opens on September 21.
