One of America’s most outspoken filmmakers, Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11), turns his sights on one of the most controversial figures of our time, in this fiery, furious account of the rise of one Donald J. Trump.
In July 2016, Michael Moore was treated like a doomsayer for writing the essay '5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win.' His prediction was the opposite of most pollsters and pundits but it came true in the early hours of November 9, 2016 when the electoral college votes were tallied. Now the veteran documentarian brings his sharp satire to analyse the legacy of 11/9 and to raise questions about what lies ahead. No one is shielded from Moore’s scattershot aim as he searches for a culprit for Trump’s ascendency - Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Vladimir Putin, the Republican party establishment, the Obama administration, the New York Times, even the millions who happily watched him yuk it up on TV: we’re all complicit.
Connecting the dots of his argument with clarity, tremendous persuasion and his trademark wit, Moore paints a fiery, startling portrait of life in Trump’s America. Populist, provocative and piercingly captivating, this is his rousing clarion call to action.Download Programme Notes (PDF)
