Michael Moore’s film SLACKER UPRISING traces his 62-city tour of the swing states during the 2004 Presidential election and records the thrilling – and frightening – response he received across the country. Moore’s goal was to convince millions of non-voting “slackers” – mostly between the ages of 18 to 29 – to give voting a try. Starting out in Elk Rapids, Michigan, in front of an audience of 400, the tour caught on like wildfire with up to 16,000 slackers each night coming to see Moore and his traveling band of speakers, comedians, and musicians.
Featuring Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam), Tom Morello (of Rage Against The Machine), R.E.M., Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Roseanne, and Viggo Mortensen. Score by Anti-Flag.
