Michael Moore, the Oscar-winning filmmaker is coming to Dublin next week for a special IFTA screening of his branbd new film, Where to Invade Next.

Michael is considered one of the world’s most successful documentary makers for his works such as Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11.

He won an Oscar in 2002 for Bowling for Columbine, which saw him investigating American gun control laws.

The film raked in $58 million (€51 million) at the worldwide box office which was totally unheard of for a documentary back then.

Fahrenheit 9/11 went on to make $222 million (€195 million) at the worldwide box office.

Michael’s latest documentary, Where To Invade Next is his first film in six years. The film shows the Oscar winner travelling in countries such as Tunisia, Finland, Italy, France, and Portugal where he experiences those countries' alternative methods of dealing with the social and economic ills experienced in America.



Director and activist, Michael Moore has caused controversy after he slammed the new Oscar-nominated movie, American Sniper.

The movie stars Bradley Cooper as US sniper, Chris Kyle and Sienna Miller as his wife. However, Michael Moore has taken to Twitter and slammed snipers as cowards, writing: “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.”

Michael’s issues with the movie don’t stop at the snipers as he also tweeted about the fact that the Iraqi people are branded as ‘savages’ throughout the entire movie as well as slamming the war on Iraq in general.

The Fahrenheit 9/11 director wasn’t the only one to cause upset with comments on the movie, with Seth Rogen accused of comparing to Nazi propaganda when he tweeted: “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.”

However, Seth has since said that his comment was blown out of proportion and this is not what he was insinuating: “I wasn’t comparing the two. Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can’t compare them though.”

It seems like American Sniper is causing serious trouble before the Oscars!
