Who wants to see a free movie? Michael Moore wants you to see his latest documentary and wants to encourage you to vote in November (for Democrats, preferably).
“I’m giving you my blanket permission to not only download it, but also to email it, burn it, and share it with anyone and everyone (in the U.S. and Canada only). I want you to use ‘Slacker Uprising’ in any way you see fit to help with the election or to do the work that you do in your community. You can show my film in your local theater, your high school classroom, your college auditorium, your church, union hall or community center. You can have your friends and neighbors over to the house for a viewing. You can broadcast it on TV, on cable access, on regular channels or on the web. It’s completely free — I don’t want to see a dime from this. And if you want, you can charge admission or ask for a donation if it’s to raise money for a candidate, a voter drive, or for any non-profit or educational purpose. In other words — it’s yours!” — Michael Moore
Now I’m waiting for Oliver Stone to offer W. for free (and waiting for Davd Zucker to pay me to see An American Carol.)
Moore said the unorthodox rollout is a gift to his fans and a rallying cry for the coming¬†election.
“At times there’s nothing wrong with preaching to the choir,” he said in a telephone interview from his office in Traverse City, Michigan Liberals have been “pretty beaten down over the last 28¬†years.”
“The choir, especially on our side of the political fence, is often fairly dejected,” he observed, “and could use a good song every now and¬†then.” (International Herald Tribune)
