You’ve Been Trumped

Rated PG.

Many New Zealanders will relate to this documentary about a small Scottish village in Aberdeenshire and its battle between conservation and the development of its coastline. In 2006 the Scottish government allowed Donald Trump’s property development corporation to make plans to build a golf course and luxury hotel in the unique sand dune environment, and turned a blind eye to the organisation’s use of intimidation tactics on the locals.

The film can be a little one-eyed, as it tells only the perspective of the locals. But this is not through any fault of filmmaker Anthony Baxter, who tried to contact Donald’s team for comment and was arrested by the local police, presumably at Donald’s request. Engaging viewing.

Rating: 3/5
