Watch: Trailer for Environmental Doc "You've Been Trumped"

Anthony Baxter's "You've Been Trumped."

Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Donald Trump might be a little less than enthused with his appearance in director Anthony Baxter's environmental documentary, "You've Been Trumped."

The film follows Trump's efforts to build a hotel and golf course near Aberdeen, Scotland in the UK's last natural sand dunes. Local residents put up a fight against Trump in this David vs. Goliath story.

The trailer has just been released, and it looks like the film will rile up both Trump's detractors and environmentalists.

indieWIRE caught the film at Toronto's Hot Docs in May and attended a Q&A with the filmmakers.

“A year ago when I pitched it, someone said to me, ‘I hope you got a good lawyer,’” said Baxter at TIFF. “I said ‘Oh no, I haven’t, but that shouldn’t stop me from making the film.’ These people have this sense of bullying us as filmmakers so that we can’t hold them accountable. You’ve got to make these films despite those fears.”
