Fahrenheit 11/9 is a 2018 documentary film directed and written by Michael Moore. The film aims to explore the political climate of the United States in the era of President Donald Trump, particularly through the lens of events leading up to the 2016 US Presidential Election. The film's title is a play on Moore's earlier documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which also dealt with the aftermath of a presidential election.

The movie begins by showing footage of the 2016 US Presidential Election and the reactions of people from all over the country. The film explores the events leading up to Trump's election, including the rise of the Tea Party, the Flint water crisis, the Black Lives Matter movement and the role of the mainstream media. The film also touches on the controversy with Clinton's nomination and the DNC email leaks.

Fahrenheit 11/9 delves into the political campaigns of both Trump and Clinton, specifically highlighting their flaws, controversies and bold statements. Moore questions the reasons behind their popularity and asks whether the election was rigged to favour Trump. He also examines the role of the media in the election, uncovering a variety of news organisations that helped the Trump campaign gain ground.

The film interviews a range of individuals to discuss what they believe to be the root causes of the current political climate in the US, including activists, politicians, and ordinary citizens. Moore gives voice to those who feel underrepresented and disadvantaged by the current system, including impoverished residents of Flint.

The film also examines the impact of Trump's election on minorities, immigrants and African-Americans. We hear from Dawn, an African American resident of Michigan who is affected by the water crisis in Flint. We also hear from a DREAMer named Maria and her family who express their fears and uncertainty in the face of Trump's efforts to end DACA.

The film touches on the aftermath of the election, including the appointment of Trump's controversial cabinet members and the ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the election. It also highlights the various political movements and protests that have arisen since Trump's election, including the Women's March and the ongoing resistance movements.

Overall, Fahrenheit 11/9 is a hard-hitting documentary film that doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of the current political climate in the US. It offers a compelling insight into the factors that led to Trump's election, as well as the ongoing struggles of those affected by his policies. Through the lens of this film, Moore attempts to contextualize America’s current political system and to show how it might evolve in the future. Although it can be upsetting at times, Fahrenheit 11/9 is a must-watch for anyone who values the democratic process, fairness and equity.

Fahrenheit 11/9 is a 2018 documentary with a runtime of 2 hours. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.2 and a MetaScore of 69.
