Michael Moore Documentary Screening – “Where to Invade Next”

September 15, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us for an open-to-all film screening of Michael Moore’s newest documentary: Where to Invade Next.

This documentary shows how other countries are dealing with tough policy decisions on issues like unionized workforces, public education, prisons, and gender equality — better than we are here in the States.

Depending on turnout, we will either screen this upstairs in the Suite 201 Living Room or downstairs in our open coworking space. Please RSVP so we can determine where to set up shop!

(A $2-$3 donation is suggested to help us cover the costs of licensing! Popcorn and soda will be on hand as well 🙂

 

“All has been fairly quiet on the pestering front for Michael Moore since “Capitalism: A Love Story,” his glum 2009 assessment of the greed-is-good culture that spawned the global financial crisis. But now this impassioned and unruly provocateur returns to further dismantle the myth of American supremacy with renewed optimism and sharpened comic instincts in “Where to Invade Next,” an impishly entertaining, career-summarizing polemic bent on demonstrating how other countries around the world — with their happy workers, superior schools, humane prisons, healthy sexual attitudes and fully empowered women — are putting U.S. progress to shame. This may be drive-by tourism on a highly selective, flattering and downright gluttonous scale, but there’s something undeniably sharp and buoyant about Moore’s globe-trotting, grass-is-greener approach that compels indulgence and attention. It may not win over his detractors, who are and remain legion, but with careful election-season targeting by a shrewd distributor, he might just have his biggest crowdpleaser since “Fahrenheit 9/11,” at home as well as abroad.”
