With the US election drawing close, it was always inevitable that America’s most famous maker of political documentaries was going to get involved.
It is also no surprise that Michael Moore is on the Democrat side. What might be more surprising is how far he is willing to take his message to places the Republicans are targeting. Michael Moore in Trumpland is footage from a one-man show he performed in Ohio, arguably the most famous swing state and one of key battlegrounds of the election. Many areas of Ohio look like supporting Donald Trump because they have been hit hard economically.
In this programme Moore performs in town of Wilimington, a Trump-supporting area, in order to encourage them to change their minds and, “Make America sane again.”
Michael Moore in Trumpland is on Channel 4 on Saturday at 23.00.
