In a generous move, Michael Moore has announced he is offering his latest movie Slacker Uprising as a free download for his fans in the United States and Canada on the film's Official Site.
In October 2004, just before the United States Presidential election, Michael Moore went on a 62-city tour through the undecided states to register and rally young would-be voters to vote for a change in our country. Michael was joined on tour by some of the U.S.'s most politically involved musicians and artists, including Eddie Vedder, Steve Earle, Roseanne Barr, Joan Baez, and Viggo Mortensen (to name a few). With visits to college campuses and other venues, this documentary showcases what the filmmaker calls "the birth of a new political generation."
"As you may have heard, I've decided to make my new film, "Slacker Uprising," available for free to everyone in the United States and Canada. It is the first time ever that a major feature-length film is debuting as a free download on the internet -- legally. I am doing this for two reasons:
Next year it will be 20 years since my first film, "Roger & Me," so I'd like to give those of you who've supported my work over the years a thank you gift in the form of a brand new movie; and
I hope the release and wide distribution of this new movie will help to bring out millions of young and new voters on November 4th."
So there you have it. If you are a fan in the United States or Canada, you can download it right now at their Official Site.
