The film, which documents the development of a multi-million pound golf resort on a pristine stretch of Aberdeenshire coastline by the flamboyant ‘Scottish-American’ Donald Trump, will be shown at the Glasgow Film Theatre on 30 September and the Edinburgh Filmhouse on October 2.
Following the development of Trump’s resort from 2005 to the present day, Anthony Baxter gathers evidence of police brutality, local corruption and big business influencing the Scottish National Party in a film which First Minister Alex Salmond has so far refused to view despite repeated invitations to do so. Included in the film is footage of Scottish Young Greens taking part in a protest against the golf course and interviews with people threatened with eviction from their homes by the Trump organisation. The soundtrack is composed by Icelandic sonngwriter Jonsi, lead singer in the post rock group Sigur Ros.
The Edinburgh and Glasgow screenings will be accompanied by a question and answer session with Anthony Baxter himself, whilst the Edinburgh screening will also feature a performance from stellar Scottish folk singer and Green Karine Polwart. The Edinburgh Young Greens will be organising a trip to watch the film, so look out for booking information. The full dates can be found here
