Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is setting his sights on Donald Trump and his rise to power in his latest film, “Fahrenheit 11/9”.
The doc, which will hold its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, is a sort-of sequel to his 2004 film “Fahrenheit 9/11”, which took aim at then-U.S. president George W. Bush’s use of the September 11 attacks to push his agenda for a war against Iraq.
“Fahrenheit 11/9″‘s release comes just ahead of the U.S. mid-term elections, with Moore looking to spread anti-Trump messaging and insight into his politics.
Based on the trailer, the Oscar-winning Moore will tackle everything from the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, gun ownership, and the rise of young gun-control activists David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez to the ongoing water crisis in his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and those standing opposed to Trump.
Following its TIFF premiere, “Fahrenheit 11/9” will land in theatres September 21.
