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. In the first trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore grapples with significant issues like gun control and the complacency of the American people.
Fahrenheit 11/9 is named after the date that Trump was officially announced as the victor of the presidential election. "He has no intention of leaving the White House", Moore told the far-left news outlet.
Fahrenheit 11/9 will be presented with the mix of outrage and mischievous humor that has made Moore the most successful documentary filmmaker in the world. It received a 20-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere. At the awards ceremony, Moore took the opportunity to speak out against President George W. Bush and the Iraq War during his acceptance speech, a rhetoric that was met with a decidedly less than enthusiastic reaction at the time.
The documentary will premiere at this year's Toronto film festival before a United States release on 21 September.
See the Trailer shared on the Huffington Post Twitter below! "This is the movie that will end the madness". Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.
"Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope", Moore declared. How do you feel about a Michael Moore-helmed Donald Trump documentary? We don't need hope. Speaking with HuffPost, Moore described the motives behind his new film.
"Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work".
Fahrenheit 11/9 refers to the day that Trump was officially announced as the next US president, and the title seems to liken his election to have had as much of an impact on the country as the September 11 attacks did.
