I am Michael Moore. Ask me anything!
EDIT after: If it's hard to find all my answers, they're here: http://www.reddit.com/user/MMFlint
Hello reddit! I'm a filmmaker ('Fahrenheit 9/11'), author ('Stupid White Men') and citizen ('United States of America'). I'll be here on Friday, March 22nd from noon ET until about 2:00 pm. EDIT: See below, hope to return later today.
Tomorrow, March 23rd, is the 10th anniversary of my film 'Bowling for Columbine' winning the Oscar for Best Documentary. It was only the fourth night of the Iraq War, so my acceptance speech was a little ahead of its time. Take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7Is43K6lrg
But the reason I wanted to talk to you today isn't to celebrate, but to help organize the vast majority of Americans who are against gun violence. My greatest hope in making 'Bowling for Columbine' was that in ten years, so much would have changed that people in 2013 would think of it as a dated and irrelevant film. Sadly, that has not been the case.
That's why, together with Moveon, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, USAction, Progressive Democrats of America and RootsAction, I'm holding a nationwide screening of 'Bowling' tomorrow, Saturday, March 23rd at 7 pm ET, with an online post-movie discussion from New York of what we all can do right now to end the plague of gun violence in our country. I hope you can join us -- all the details are here: http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/must-read/hold-your-own-10th-anniversary-bowling-columbine-house-party-and-discussion
So let's get started here on reddit. And we don't have to just talk about guns…ask me about anything and I'll give you an honest answer.
EDIT: Sorry to have missed some things, just learning how to use reddit. Will have to go soon, but hope to be back later today at six pm to answer more questions.
EDIT: 5:15 PM ET I'll be back at around six pm for about 45 more minutes.
EDIT: 7:15 PM ET Have to run now -- thank you! Sorry I couldn't answer too many questions at the end, kept getting message Reddit was down for maintenance. I really hope everybody interested can join us tomorrow for the 'Bowling for Columbine' screening and post-movie discussion about gun violence -- http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/must-read/hold-your-own-10th-anniversary-bowling-columbine-house-party-and-discussion
