Fahrenheit 11/9 Trailer: Michael Moore Explores America Under Trump

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Now Moore has turned his lens on America under the reign of Donald Trump, going after the lawmakers in Flint, Michigan over their disastrous handling of the city's water crisis and talking to people like David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida that happened earlier this year. HuffPost also premiered a trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9, which drops on September 21.

Moore, an Academy Award-winning director, is helming the film. He began shooting the film previous year with the "11/9" in the title referring to the day Trump was declared President of the United States on November 9, 2016. He hopes this film will "end the madness" that people seem content to let continue.

"Moore told HuffPost that he hopes the film exposes the "grave danger" posed by Trump".

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. But months before that infamous night, Moore had already begun ruminating on what could be done to stop the, according to him, "carnage Trump would inflict while president". We don't need hope.

The "Fahrenheit 11/9" footage also shows Moore speaking to David Hogg, the activist student who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018, and progressive Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won a stunning victory in the primary earlier this summer. They're getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do. "Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work".

Following Fahrenheit 11/9's TIFF world premiere, the film will debut in the United States on September 21st.
