Aberdeen Information Session

Youve-Been-Trumped-2012

Do not miss the next Imagining Natural Scotland Information Session in Aberdeen which features presentations from award-winning documentary filmmaker Anthony Baxter and Lorna Dawson, a highly respected soil scientist from the Hutton Institute in Aberdeen.

Anthony Baxter’s film ‘You’ve been Trumped’ explores the David and Goliath-style conflict between a group of proud Scottish homeowners and American tycoon Donald Trump, as he gets set to build a huge golf resort on an environmentally protected site in Aberdeenshire.

Baxter follows the local residents as they make their last stand in the face of security harassments, legal threats and the loss of their water and electricity supplies. Baxter himself becomes international news after being thrown in jail following an interview with Mr Trump’s green keeper.

Told entirely without narration, the film captures the cultural chasm between the glamorous, jet-setting and media-savvy Donald Trump and a deeply rooted Scottish community. For the tycoon, the golf course is just another deal, with a possible billion dollar payoff. For the residents, it represents the destruction of a globally unique landscape and highly sensitive environmental site.
