Fahrenheit 11/9 - USA, 2018, 128 min, documentary
Director and screenwriter: Michael Moore

Moore inverts the title of his earlier Fahrenheit 9/11 as he goes after Trump – elected President of the US on 9 November 2016. Moore is a genius at connecting the dots of his argument with clarity and tremendous persuasion. With his trademark wit, Moore examines what led to Trump’s rise to power, strongly criticising the Democratic Party and the greed of the media. He also interrogates the role played by the Obama administration, accusing it of a myriad of wrongful policy decisions and apathy towards political disenchantment in the US. Moore presents some alarming comparisons between Trump and previous leaders accused of demagoguery. He pays close attention to recent cases that have shaken US culture to the core. These cases are employed to highlight the rot at the heart of the establishment, but they also champion the rise of widespread civic engagement. With Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore paints a fiery, startling portrait of life in Trump’s America.
