BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE

In the age of Donald Trump and the "alt-right," and with mass shootings now a regular occurrence in the U.S., there's no better time to revisit Michael Moore's Academy Award®-Winning documentary, Bowling For Columbine.

In 2002, Michael Moore began his exploration of the roots of America's love affair with guns. The result was a masterpiece that stripped bare the racial unrest and culture of fear that is now as central to American society as ever.

After the Movie: On the 15th anniversary of the documentary, and on the exact day of the Columbine massacre 18 years ago, a conversation with director Michael Moore and D.A. Pennebaker on the timeliness of the film today. | Read More
