The film-lover’s guide to taking environmental action in the first 100 days of the new White House administration.
Part One: Inauguration Day, January 20
If you’re looking for films to resist Trump’s environmental agenda, there’s no better place to start than with the You’ve Been Trumped Trilogy from director Anthony Baxter.
Since the first film, You’ve Been Trumped (SFGFF 2012), Baxter has taken great risks to penetrate the ongoing operation of Donald Trump and his designs to take away people’s homes, land and water for his destination golf course in Scotland.
The second film A Dangerous Game (SFGFF 2014), charts the eco-impact of luxury golf resorts around the world and back to the filmmaker's native Scotland, where Donald Trump continues his controversial building.
You’ve Been Trumped Too (2016), brings the story bang up to date, following the ongoing battle of a feisty 92-year-old Scottish widow and her family to get Trump to give them back their access to water.
Why is this relevant?
If a feisty 92-year old can stand up to Trump’s environmental agenda, we all can.
You’ll see first-hand the lengths that Trump goes to - getting around environmental legislation so that his golf business can prosper.
There are open and honest conversations showing the day to day impact of golf course on people’s lives and the environment, but also the resolve they have to make sure they are not forgotten.
