Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 11/9' Calls for Action, Not Hope

The release of the trailer was accompanied by an interview with Moore by The Huffington Post where the filmmaker made sure to attack the president. Moore links Trump's political victory to numerous country's biggest crises and issues, including the rise of white supremacists, as the featured trailer above is highlighted with Moore spraying water from Flint, Michigan on a governor's home, and interviewing survivors of the Parkland shooting.

Filming on Moore's new Trump documentary has been done under a strict cloak of secrecy.

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.

Documentarian Michael Moore is back with a new film called Fahrenheit 11/9 and it doesn't look like it's going to be pulling any punches.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore warned. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued.

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.

"Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope", Moore declared. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation or an adult film star will save the country.

The trailer for "Fahrenheit 11/9" is fairly unfocused, but it seems to be pulling the usual leftist talking points: Trump is a dictator, his supporters are racist, America is not the greatest country in the world, pigs will soon fly, blah, blah, blah. The title refers to the date when Trump became president-elect of the United States, and following the news that this movie will play at the Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer has arrived.
