"Michael Moore in TrumpLand" will screen in Los Angeles and New York City beginning Wednesday. The 73-minute film by the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker was announced Tuesday.
Moore, who has been an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump throughout the presidential election, has reportedly given a fair case on why voters should choose Hillary Clinton as the first female president of the United States. The film will begin its theatrical run at the IFC Center (for one week only) and Los Angeles' Laemmle Town Center 5 in Encino. It will later be made available digitally.
“What the country doesn’t need is to be told Trump is a sociopath,” Moore said while introducing the film’s premiere screening at New York City’s IFC Center on Tuesday night. “He’s produced that movie.”
The tickets for the film can be purchased at the Laemmle Town Center 5. The film can also be purchased on iTunes starting Wednesday, when the film is officially released.
In the film, Moore shows some of Clinton’s greatest hits, from her 1969 commencement address at Wellesley College to her fight for universal healthcare as the first lady. He also presents a 1998 clip from his short-lived TV series "The Awful Truth" in which Trump compliments Hillary, calling her “a good woman” who’s “going to be married to our current president for a long time.”
The synopsis of the latest film by Moore reads: "See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election."
In late September, Moore wrote on Facebook that he had organized a performance at the Midland Theater in Newark, Ohio, "the heart of Trump Country," but it was canceled by the community board that oversees the theater.
