Award-winning director Michael Moore has announced his upcoming anti-Trump documentary entitled Fahrenheit 11/9. Moore made the announcement during his latest appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, presenting footage of Moore being kicked out of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf club during his making of the documentary. Moore will be teaming up with film executive Tom Ortenberg who also distributed Moore’s earlier films Fahrenheit 9/11 and Sicko.
The title is a play both on Moore’s earlier documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), which interrogated the Bush administration’s ‘war on terror’, as well as the date President Trump was elected (9th November). Fahrenheit 9/11 remains the highest grossing documentary of all time with $222 million grossed worldwide.
Moore hinted at his new project in May when he tweeted a clip from Roseanne Barr’s 1998 talk show The Roseanne Show, in which Trump congratulated Moore on his film Roger & Me. Trump fatefully stated “I hope he never does one on me.” Moore captioned the tweet “I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me…”
Here’s the official synopsis for Fahrenheit 11/9:
“Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live. It will explore the two most important questions of the Trump Era: How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? It’s the film to see before it’s too late.”
Fahrenheit 11/9 is slated for release September 21st.
