Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Michael Moore has released for the first trailer for his upcoming "Fahrenheit 11/9", spraying "Flint water" into the front yard of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder.

The name of the film is taken from the day after the November 8 election when Trump was declared the president-elect and is a reference to Moore's 2004 President George W. Bush-focused documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.

Here's the exclusive trailer for Michael Moore's (@MMFlint) newest documentary "Fahrenheit 11/9".

Fahrenheit 11/9 will showcase a detailed look at the 2016 United States presidential election, and Donald Trump's first year of presidency. 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.

In an interview with HuffPost, Moore describes Trump as an "evil genius" and speaks to the potential power of his new film. "This is the movie that will end the madness".

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore warned. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued.

Throughout the trailer, there are snippets that show the wide range of topics that will be covered in the documentary, including the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the emboldening of white nationalists, an increase in toxic nationalism, as well as NY congressional democratic primary victor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This puts us all in grave danger.

Asked if the film provides a "glimmer of hope", Moore shot back, "Fuck hope". That movie only played in theaters for one night, and it correctly predicted that Trump would win the presidency in a time when very few people believed that was even a remote possibility. The Bowling for Columbine director is also seen spraying "Flint water" into the front yard of Rick Snyder, the governor of MI.
