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.

Moore and political satire

This documentary is one of a long line of highly politicised works by the filmmaker, who directed and produced Fahrenheit 9/11 in 2004 , the highest grossing documentary film of all times, which criticises the presidency of George W. Bush and the consequences of the War on Terror.
