Donald Trump won’t give it a rest. For years, residents of Aberdeenshire, Scotland fought his plans to build a luxury golf resort on rare sand dunes. Now The Donald is back, trumpeting plans for another site in the area. Anthony Baxter follows his previous film “You’ve Been Trumped” – 36th CIFF, with a swing at this second contentious golf course, in development on an arid hillside overlooking the stunning city of Dubrovnik. A DANGEROUS GAME rebels against the foolhardiness of building golf resorts in deserts and other fragile ecosystems. We travel with the intrepid Baxter to Scotland, Croatia, Long Island, and Las Vegas, coming up everywhere against developers who work hand-in-hand with politicians to line their pockets. All this gets the goat of the Scots, who have long regarded golf as a game for common folk. Environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. warns against nature-defiling profiteers: “There are lots of Donald Trumps out there, in every country.” (In English and Croatian with subtitles) – B.B.
