“This is the story of the attempt of a failed filmmaker to change things”
Michael Francis Moore (born April 23, 1954) is an American documentary filmmaker and author.
He is the director and producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11″ (2004), a critical look at the presidency of George W. Bush and the War on Terror, which is the highest-grossing documentary at the American boxoffice of all time and winner of the Palme d’Or.
His film Bowling for “Columbine” (2002), which examines the causes of the Columbine High School massacre, won the Academy Award for Documentary Feature.
Both “Fahrenheit” 9/11 and “Sicko” (2007), which examines health care in the United States, are among the top ten highest-grossing documentaries.
In September 2008, he released his first free movie on the Internet, “Slacker Uprising”, which documented his personal quest to encourage more Americans to vote in presidential elections.
