Michael Moore’s latest film, Slacker Uprising, will be made available as a free download on the internet for three weeks beginning on September 23rd. The documentary chronicles Moore’s attempts at rallying young voters during the 2004 presidential election. According to Moore, the film–which cost just $2 million to make–was never intended to be released commercially:
This is being done entirely as a gift to my fans. 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 (millions) to get off the couch and give voting a chance.
The download will be available on BlipTV. Then after three weeks are up, you’ll be able to purchase the DVD through Amazon and Netflix.
