‘Fahrenheit 9/11’s director Michael Moore has revealed that a screening of his surprise new film will take place tonight in New York.
As ever, Moore will be courting controversy with his new subject matter: Republican nominee for the US presidency, Donald J. Trump.
An official synopsis for 'Michael Moore in Trumpland’ reads: “See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down.
"Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.”
In a Facebook post Michael Moore posted a picture from his editing suite with a screen showing Donald Trump’s three children: Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump Jr.
'Trumpland’ is based on the the documentary filmmaker’s one-man-show, which Moore had hoped to perform in an Ohio theatre before it was “banned” according to his side of the story.
The theatre in question, Newark’s Midland Theatre said in September was based on factors including questions regarding what the show’s production involved.
Moore wanted to film the show as his “October surprise” ahead of election day on 8 November, but has now turned it into a film.
'Michael Moore in Trumpland’ will be screened for free on a first come first serve basis at New York City’s IFC Center tonight (18 October) before beginning a run in US cinemas from tomorrow.
Moore has had a busy year. It was only in June that he released 'Where To Invade Next’, a documentary about what the United States can learn from other nations.
