Partisan filmmaker Michael Moore is set to debut a surprise film about Donald Trump Tuesday night (Oct. 18) at the IFC Center in New York.
The timely film by the Academy Award-winning director, whose previous films including Fahrenheit 911, Sicko and Bowling for Columbine, is called Michael Moore in Trumpland and is based on a one-man show he has been performing in Ohio, deep in Trump-loyal territory, in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election in the U.S. It’s described in a release as “the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down,” and will dive “right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show.”
The film, which is produced by Moore’s prodco, Dog Eat Dog Films and IMG Films, will begin one-week exclusive runs in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 19. It’s produced, written and directed by Moore, with Carl Deal serving as producer.
Moore will be on-hand on Oct. 18 for the sneak preview at the IFC Center.
