The trailer shows Moore filming neo-Nazi rallies first hand, interviewing David Hogg - a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, and spraying the governor of Michigan's house with contaminated water from his hometown of Flint.
Fahrenheit 11/9 will make its world premiere in Toronto on September 6. Moore asks in the trailer. He hopes this film will "end the madness" that people seem content to let continue.
The "Fahrenheit 11/9" footage also shows Moore speaking to David Hogg, the activist student who survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018, and progressive Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won a stunning victory in the primary earlier this summer. This puts us all in grave danger.
"Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope", Moore declared.
"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", Moore said". At the awards ceremony, Moore took the opportunity to speak out against President George W. Bush and the Iraq War during his acceptance speech, a rhetoric that was met with a decidedly less than enthusiastic reaction at the time.
Like "Fahrenheit 9/11", which tackled the impact of George W. Bush's presidency on society, Moore appears to be using this movie to present how Donald Trump's presidency happened and what it could mean for the US further down the line.
Since Trump won the election, the Oscar-winning documentarian has referred to the president a "traitor" who should be arrested and tweeted that his presidency is a "total bomb" that will "close early" (with the help of his 10-point plan). We don't need hope.
