‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer: Michael Moore Doc Targets Mid-Term Elections

Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the unusual things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever.

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. Check out the Fahrenheit 11/9 trailer below, and check out the movie when it hits theaters on September 21!

Moore, an Academy Award-winning director, is helming the film.

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". 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". Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states. To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit ‪9/11 - Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O'Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.


In a Q&A with the HuffPost, Moore described Trump as an "evil genius" who has "no intention of leaving the White House" without a fight. Facts, reality, brains can not defeat him. "This is the movie that will end the madness".

"Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope", Moore declared.

What do you think of the Fahrenheit 11/9 trailer? Moore says in the trailer, which shows the Bowling for Columbine filmmaker examining the political and social impact of Trump's controversial election to the most powerful position in the world.
