Given how so much of Donald Trump's presidency is being played out on screens and online, it seems almost pointless at this stage to have a documentary on him when the story hasn't even finished playing itself out yet.
Still, Michael Moore's brazenly antagonistic and confrontational style is probably just the thing needed for these times and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he's not even close to pulling his punches. The documentary takes in Trump's election campaign in 2016, his first year in office, and how Trump's victory is invariably tied to the crises facing America, including the openness of white supremacy and fascism, the cosy relationship Trump has with the far-right, and everything in between.
There's even a moment where Moore decides to spray down a governor's home with contaminated water from Flint, Michigan, which is currently over 1,300 days without clean water.
Take a look. It's not yet known if 'Fahrenheit 11/9' will receive an Irish theatrical release.
