NEW YORK: Legendary documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who had predicted months before last year’s US presidential election that Donald Trump would win, has been secretly working on a new documentary.
Titled “Fahrenheit 11/9”, referring to Nov 9 last year when Trump was declared president, the film will be released by the Weinstein Company, which also put out Moore’s Oscar-nominated 2004 documentary, “Fahrenheit 9/11”.
According to a press release, Moore has been working without any fanfare over the last few months on the film. It is “expected to be key in dissolving Trump’s ‘teflon’ shield and, in turn, his presidency.” “No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked,” Moore said in the press release.
“No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting”.
The Weinstein brothers previously released Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” with more than $200 million in worldwide grosses.
