Michael Moore Gives Early Look at New Documentary FAHRENHEIT 11/9

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

Polemical documentary film maker Michael Moore has unveiled the first trailer for his new film Fahrenheit 11/9, a new broadside which charts the rise of Donald Trump from reality show host to office of United States president and his subsequent rule.

That city's water supply was poisoned when, in 2014, its source was switched from Lake Huron and the Detroit River to the cheaper Flint River, whose water flow was exposed to lead contamination.

To call Michael Moore one of Donald Trump's most outspoken critics is an understatement.

Fahrenheit 11/9 is named after the date that Trump was officially announced as the victor of the presidential election.

-Michael MooreThe ultimate message of film-which Moore describes as a "comedy/horror documentary"-appears to be a bridge between the argument that Trump presents an existential and unique threat and this message to those who oppose him: Stop despairing". It received a 20-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere.

Moore explained the motivations behind his new doc, which is set to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, in an interview with HuffPost, as well. This time Moore digs deep into the American culture to ask two provocative questions about the "Trump era": How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? He hopes this film will "end the madness" that people seem content to let continue. He released it in theaters and on various other platforms, all the while warning liberals that Donald Trump was going to win the election. We don't need hope.

According to HuffPost, the film "juxtaposes footage of Trump rallies and neo-Nazi protests with images of Moore using Flint water to hose down the MI governor's gated driveway". "No matter what you throw at him, it hasn't worked", says Moore. "Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with".

Fahrenheit 11/9 is due in United States theatres on September 21.
