Buzz is starting to build for A Dangerous Game, Anthony Baxter‘s follow-up to his Michael Moore-style 2011 documentary You’ve Been Trumped. In that original movie, the filmmaker chronicled some eventual local resistance to a luxury golf course resort development ushered in by The Donald.
The sequel recently premiered at film festival events in Sheffield, England and Edinburgh, Scotland. As part of the latter unveiling, Baxter spoke with the Scottish Daily Record about the climactic centerpiece of his new movie – an interview with Trump. The billionaire did not participate in the first movie and in fact, when the BBC announced plans to broadcast the film, he initially tried to have that airing blocked. From Baxter’s conversation with Record reporter Brian McIver:
“I went to Trump Tower and it was quite a strange experience,” said Baxter. “It was good in the sense we were able to put questions to him that were still remaining from the first film but new questions also emerged in the making of the second film. It was an extraordinary encounter and an important one in terms of being able to put to him directly the issues the residents have endured for so long.”
