Fahrenheit 11/9, a documentary made by one of the world’s leading filmmakers, Michael Moore, will have its Belgrade premiere on December 4th, at 6 pm, at Dom Omladine. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion – “How did this happen and how to get out of this”?
Fahrenheit 11/9 is a provocative and comical look at the current political situation in America. The name of the film refers to the date when Trump’s was declared the new president of the United States (November 9th).
Moore announced the film ahead of the congressional elections and says that he explores the two most important issues of the Trump era: “how did this come about” and “how to get out of this”?
The film won the Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival and had the biggest opening in the history of documentary film in the United States. It was screened at 1,719 cinemas simultaneously.
In order to engage politically indifferent spectators, above all his fellow countrymen, Moore uses history lessons from the position of progressive and repressive movements and addresses the younger generation in the hope that they can change the current state of affairs in the US.
The film will be shown across Serbia as of December 6th.
11th Moore’s documentary
Fahrenheit 11/9 is Michael Moore’s 11th documentary. ‘Bowling for Columbine’ (made in 2002), in which he criticized the gun culture in the US, brought him an Oscar. Fahrenheit 9/11 (made in 2004), which was critical of the George W. Bush administration after September 11th, became the most viewed documentary in the United States at that time and the winner of the Golden Palm in Cannes. Moore is famous for making films that are critical of globalization, big corporations, politicians, the Iraq war, the American health system, and capitalism. Time magazine declared Moore one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2005.
