Our Story

Donald Trump has told David Letterman that his luxury golf project in Scotland will ”improve" the environment.   He says almost no one is worried that he is building it on what was one of Britain's last wilderness areas.  Or that he has made life hell for local residents who don't want to leave their homes.

The reality is very different.  And that's why we need your help to take You've Been Trumped to New York next month.

The goal is to make Donald Trump – and others who seek personal profit over the health of our planet – accountable for their actions.  In the court of public opinion.


The Impact


Watch the trailer for You've Been Trumped here.  


Earlier this month our film won the top environmental award for documentaries in Britain. The Jury  said You've Been Trumped exposed “one of the most shocking environmental crimes in recent UK history.”

Donald Trump may not care what people in Britain think of him.  But America is different.  He reportedly receives as much as $50 million a year just to appear on The Apprentice.  He relies on Americans to stay in his hotels and play his golf courses.  And if he really wants to be President, it is Americans who will have to vote for him.

That's possibly why Donald Trump has been so quick to condemn You've Been Trumped – even though he hasn't actually seen it.  He's called it “boring”, “a failure”, and the director “a fraud” (that's me).  He says “nobody in America has heard of it.”

With your help, that's about to change.

What We'll Do

The prestigious IFC Centre in New York has asked us to show You've Been Trumped on 7 of July in Manhattan in New York City, less than 3 miles from Trump Tower, as part of their Stranger than Fiction series.  It's a great honour, and a chance to bring the film to the attention of the American public.  


But I need help to get there and spread the word.  Mr Trump flies back and forth to Scotland on a 757 jet (35,000 litres of fuel for a one way trip).  I'll go economy with British Airways (offsetting the emissions) and stay in the cheapest hotel I can find (that has wi-fi).  We'll need to produce DVDs/Press Screeners, various publicity materials and hire a publicist (he'll do us a deal) for a few days to get the message out to the US Media. 


Please help bring You've Been Trumped to the billionaire's backyard.


Because Money and Power Should not cost the Earth.

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT

All money raised above our target total, will go towards preparing and mastering the tape for American distribution.   It will also be used to pay for our legal fees in the United States.
