Ich hatte dann neulich noch irgendwo in einem dieser Blogkommentare einen gelesen, der ging so ungefähr „Sadly Michael Moore has no movie coming up in this election“ und der dann gestern so: Michael Moore Working Down To Wire On Surprise ‘TrumpLand’ Movie. Der Film hatte gestern Premiere (Reviews beim Guardian und Deadline) und soll in den kommenden Wochen per VoD online verfügbar gemacht werden.

Ich mag Moore ja trotz der ganzen Kritik nach wie vor sehr gerne. Seinen letzten Film Where to invade next habe ich noch nicht gesehen, seinen TrumpLand werde ich mir aber aus offensichtlichen Gründen definitiv anschauen.

"We're flying by the seat of our pants here," the Oscar-winning filmmaker of Bowling for Columbine, who has been an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump throughout the presidential election, told the premiere’s audience. "Our goal is to have as many Americans see this over the next five or ten days."

The live performance film — which sees Moore speaking about the two candidates onstage, and supposing what would happen if each were to become the next U.S. president — was shot less than two weeks ago, over two consecutive nights at a venue in Wilmington, Ohio, in a county where Trump received four times as many votes as Clinton did in the primary elections. “To us, this was TrumpLand,” Moore explained. “I wanted to do this not in a safe place, but in a place where we’d need a lot of security, which we had.”

The film was funded by IMG Films, and its postproduction was completed at Technicolor — and locked on Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. — and IFC donated their theater for the Tuesday night premiere, co-hosted by MoveOn.org. Since the announcement’s buzz, a handful of theaters have called to screen over the next two weeks before the election. “We’ll hopefully have an announcement on that over the next 24 to 36 hours. It’s all coming together in a very rapid-fire way,” he explained. “Lots of people have been contacting us to see how they can help us.”
