Environmental groups are using the documentary "You've been Trumped" as a way to battle the proposed 18-hole golf course in southern Albemarle. The film was shown Monday night at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville.
Trump would need a special use permit to build the course, but environmentalists hope the movie will help persuade people against it. The film casts a negative light on the effects Trump's project had in Scotland.
"The concerns in Scotland were environmental concerns because it was one of the last coastal wilderness areas in Great Britain, and also concerns about the Trump organization's treatment of residents who lived around the site and were opposed to it," said Richard Phinney, producer of the documentary.
The ultimate decision about the golf course lies in the hands of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.
