Michael Moore has spent 20 years making groundbreaking movies such as Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11 and Sicko.

Now he is offering a feature length film for free with an internet download available 2 weeks from today, September 23.

Sign up for the free download at Slacker Uprising .

Slacker Uprising traces Michael Moore’s 62-city tour of the swing states during the 2004 Presidential election and records the thrilling — and frightening — response he received across the country.


Neither Moore nor Brave New Films will make any money from the film, which had a budget of over $2 million. “This is being done entirely as a gift to my fans,” said Moore. “The only return any of us are hoping for is the largest turnout of young voters ever at the polls in November. I think ‘Slacker Uprising’ will inspire million to get off the couch and give voting a chance.”

Along with Moore’s appearance, “Slacker Uprising” features live performances or appearances by Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam), Roseanne Barr, Joan Baez, Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine), R.E.M., Steve Earle, and Viggo Mortensen.
