Michael Moore ude med ny dokumentar

“Fahrenheit 9/11”, Michael Moores film om George W. Bush og krigen mod terror er den dokumentar, der til dags dato har tjent flest penge. Over § 110.000.000 blev det til. Hvis USA som nation var splittet da den film kom ud i 2004, er det intet imod hvad nationen er nu – to år inde i Donald Trumps præsidentskab og nu bruger Moore sit navn og filmens eftermæle til at zoome ind på netop det faktum. “Fahrenheit 11/9” vil prøve at få Trump ned med nakken inden midtvejsvalget i november.

Traileren til den nye dokumentar havde eksklusiv premiere på Huffington Post tidligere på ugen og filmen har premiere i USA den 21. september .

 


Inden traileren kom ud stillede Huffington Post Michael Moore en række spørgsmål om filmen. Her er et lille uddrag af hans svar:

Donald Trump is an evil genius. He has no intention of leaving the White House. Whenever he hears that another country has a president for life, he perks up and thinks, “I like the sound of that!” And he has an obedient political party that holds every seat of power backing him up.

American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader. Our media has no idea what it is up against. They’re getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do. This puts us all in grave danger. If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out.”

….

“The majority of Americans agree with me on the issues. I’m part of the majority. Our choir is much bigger than Trump’s choir or Fox News’ choir.

Unfortunately, our choir is out of tune, and it’s hard to hear our voices through all the sobbing and despair. That all ends on Sept. 21. The choir needs a song to sing. Once we come together in beautiful harmony, the Trump crime family will be prosecuted, law and order will be restored, we’ll have Medicare for All and we’ll declare that “Game of Thrones” must remain on the air for at least three more seasons.”
