American documentary filmmaker Michael Moore recently surprised the world by releasing a last-minute documentary, Michael Moore in TrumpLand, to denounce the dangers of electing Donald Trump as President of the United States.
What is Michael Moore in TrumpLand
Shot over the course of four hours on 7th of October at the Murphy Theatre in Wilmington, Ohio, the film documents a talk by the director to an audience composed of both Republicans and Democrats. It is a work of political satire against the Republican nominee, and a praise of the hard political work and bravery of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Brexit comparison
In the documentary Moore defines a Trump victory as “the biggest fuck-you ever recorded in human history“, comparing this potential result to Brexit, where he believes, “they used the ballot as an anger-management tool”. The only difference is that Trump’s impact as US President would be much more catastrophic in Moore’s view.
