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

Sunday, 12 Aug, 2018

This is actually Moore's second Trump-related documentary over the past two years.

Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live.

The trailer even ends on an image Trump with Moore narrating, "Ladies and gentlemen, the last president of the United States". The "11/9" in the title refers to the day Donald Trump was declared President of the United States, at 2:29AM in the morning of November 9th, 2016. "He has no intention of leaving the White House", Moore said.

"On opening weekend, Fahrenheit 9/11 was the number one movie in every red state in the country", he says in reference to his award-winning documentary. It received a 20-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere.

It is also a play on Moore's earlier documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, about the presidency of George W. Bush.

Like "Fahrenheit 9/11", which tackled the impact of George W. Bush's presidency on society, Moore appears to be using this movie to present how Donald Trump's presidency happened and what it could mean for the US further down the line.

In the trailer we see Moore, visibly whipped up, meeting with both Parkland activists as well as rising influential politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He also warned that unless things change, "Donald Trump Is Gonna Get Us Killed". In that same vein, Moore's new project is bound to explore what America has become under Trump, as well as the possible connotations his administration will have for the country's future. We don't need hope. He emphasizes that having "hope" alone is passive, saying our nation should not rely on this to solve our problems. "Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with". The Weinstein Company committed $6 million to make the film, but pulled funding in the wake of Harvey Weinstein's sex crimes scandal.
