In July 2016, Michael Moore was treated like a crackpot doomsayer for writing the essay "5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win." His prediction was the opposite of most pollsters and pundits but it came true in the wee hours of November 9, 2016 when the electoral college votes were tallied.
Now Moore brings his sharp satire to analyse the legacy of 11/9 and to raise questions about what lies ahead. He pays close attention to recent cases that have shaken US culture to the core: the Flint water crisis; the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting; the West Virginia teachers’ strike. And to those affected, he gives a voice. These cases are employed to highlight the rot at the heart of the establishment, but they also champion the rise of widespread civic engagement.
With Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore paints a fiery, startling portrait of life in Trump’s America. Populist, provocative and piercingly captivating, this is Moore’s clarion call to action.
