  • It's been six years since renowned political agitator and stalwart purveyor of institutional dissent Michael Moore wielded his camera as a tool to raise his voice on the subject of national consciousness. With his latest call to action, it's clear that in his time away he's been plotting and planning his largest-scale subject to date: a global tour to improve and realize the American Dream itself. Opening with a grand central conceit, Moore proudly announces his message to the Pentagon: "Stand down!" — as he will take care of the invading from now on. So begins his odyssey as a one–man army, occupying a plethora of unsuspecting countries in a valiant effort to pillage their best ideas for the good of the American people. With this delightfully subversive comedy and thoughtful provocation, Moore has triumphantly achieved his most sensitive, finely tuned work of compassion for his fellow man.

  • Born in Flint, Michigan, Michael Moore is a leading, fearless voice in documentary filmmaking. FAHRENHEIT 9/11 won the Palme d’Or and FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE won the Best Documentary Oscar® in 2003. His other films include ROGER & ME, THE BIG ONE and CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY.
