#TRAILERCHEST: Michael Moore releases trailer for Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9

Michael Moore is prepping a documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, about President Trump and says the leader of the free world should be anxious.

There's even a moment where Moore decides to spray down a governor's home with contaminated water from Flint, Michigan, which is now over 1,300 days without clean water. 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 will showcase a detailed look at the 2016 United States presidential election, and Donald Trump's first year of presidency. "He has no intention of leaving the White House", stated the director.

Documentary fans have known that Michael Moore's documentaries are not to be missed, ever since the days of the Oscar-winning Bowling For Columbine. It received a 20-minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere. The film's title is a spin on Fahrenheit 9/11, another film by Michael Moore, where he discussed the presidency of George W Bush.


Moore explained the motivations behind his new doc, which is set to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, in an interview with HuffPost, as well.

Notably, in the trailer Moore is seen delivering a tankload of water from Flint, Michigan, to the home of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. "This is the movie that will end the madness". 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. Michael Moore tweeted about the same and wrote, "Amazing news today!" We don't need hope.

"Hope is passive", Moore said about the movie. "Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work". The movie is titled Fahrenheit 11/9 and will be released in the United States on September 21, reports Huffington Post, who posted the movie's trailer earlier today.
