You've Been Trumped (2012) Feature Trailer
Feature trailer for You've Been Trumped.
In this real-life David vs. Goliath drama, Donald Trump plans to develop a luxurious golf resort on ecologically fragile sand dunes near Aberdeen, Scotland. When local farmers refuse to compliantly sell their homes, the nauseatingly arrogant tycoon denigrates them in the media before resorting to strong-arm tactics like "accidentally" shutting off their water. All the while, the local police stand idly by. That is, until director Anthony Baxter asks one too many questions and they promptly arrest him. It's enough to leave a rattled viewer wondering if, in fact, Goliaths ever lose.
Set to an atmospheric score by Sigur Rós' jónsi, Baxter's documentary delivers a stirring profile of a principled resistance effort that ultimately enlists politicians, scholars and artists. The clever incorporation of scenes from Bill Forsyth's charming 1983 dramedy Local Hero (in which a Texas oilman attempts to buy up a Scottish village) serves to illustrate that truth is more appalling than fiction. As this scathing exposé unfolds, you'll find yourself mining new depths of contempt for The Donald.
