On Thursday June 24th, 10 cities across the country will host benefit screenings of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore’s controversial new documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, winner of the coveted Palme d’Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. The film will be shown in New York, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, Denver, Portland, Boston, and Seattle (all at 7:30 PM local time). All proceeds from the screenings will go to benefit local non-profit organizations such as “September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows” and “Military Families Speak Out”.

 

Fahrenheit 9/11 is a searing examination of the Bush administration's actions in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. With his characteristic humor and dogged commitment to uncovering the facts, Moore takes a closer look at the Bush family connections with Saudi Arabia, shows never-before seen footage of the war in Iraq and events leading up to it, and highlights the national media’s reduction to mere cheerleaders for the administrations war policy. It also shows a humorous, if not disturbing look at the Congress’ passage of the Patriot Act, and offers a compelling look at what families of soldiers in the field are dealing with at home.

 

Lions Gate Films will release the film nationally on June 25th.

Moore has lost something: Call it his light touch (I said his light touch, light for him) or call it his sense of humor, he used to make his point by making fun. He poked at the powerful to bring them down to earth.

 

Now he's still poking fun but in the immortal words of Billy Crystal, it's not fun, it's not funny. He's deadly serious. He's downright rabid.

God put Michael Moore on the earth so that normal people could explain to rabid right-wingers what is wrong with Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
