This sequel to “You’ve Been Trumped” (TCFF 2011—and yes, even documentaries get sequels) asks the question, what would happen if the governor of Michigan made it legal for golf courses to be built on the Sleeping Bear Dunes? Filmmaker Anthony Baxter explores the damage that occurs when wealthy developers dig into fragile environments to create massive luxurious resorts. If you think golf is harmless, be fore(!)warned—you’re about to see its dark side. How do all those acres of greenery get watered on courses in literal sand traps like Dubai? Baxter explores golf hotspots in Croatia and China before returning to his native Scotland, where Donald Trump’s development plans are met with mass protests despite his insistence that he’s “a great environmentalist.” If presidential candidate Trump wants people to think of him as a great guy, he’d better hope every copy of this documentary spontaneously combusts.
