In his own October surprise, filmmaker Michael Moore is releasing his new film, Michael Moore in Trumpland, just days before the election; the controversial director will be popping up with Skype Q&A sessions after shows at the Sie FilmCenter in Denver and the International Film Series in Boulder.
Filmed less than three weeks ago in a small theater in the Republican-leaning city of Wilmington, Ohio, Trumpland is not so much a typical Moore film as it is a one-man show expressing the highly political filmmaker's fears of a Trump presidency. It documents how Moore moved from protesting Hillary Clinton to praising her campaign based solely on important issues like equal rights, anti-sexism, health care, climate control and not opening up the seventh seal of the apocalypse.
The film was released last week on iTunes but will show on the big screen in a limited run.
