You've Been Trumped returns to DCA
5 July 2012
On Fri 13 July we welcome back Youíve Been Trumped, an award-winning documentary about Donald Trumpís Aberdeenshire golf development, which we first showed last August. The screening takes place in the week the controversial course will finally open to the public.
The film charts Trumpís progress as he begins work in an area of Special Scientific Interest and outstanding natural beauty near Aberdeen. The project was initially rejected by the local authorityís planning department, but in an unprecedented move the Scottish Government intervened to give the development the go-ahead. As Trumpís bulldozers spring into action, local homeowners are left to engage in a Local Hero-style refusal to sell their land.
Anthony Baxter, the film's director, will attend the screening and take part in a Q&A afterwards. He said ďDCA has been instrumental in bringing our film to a wider audience and Iím delighted to be attending the screening to answer questions from local people about the challenges of taking on Trump, in the very week his troubled golf course opens on what was once one of our countryís last wilderness areas.Ē
