Michael Moore’s new film’s trailer

This video is the trailer for the new film by Michael Moore, Capitalism: a love story.

Moore‘s latest screen gem, “Capitalism: a Love Story,” may be the most he has moved away from support for capitalism and the closest he has come toward advocating socialist solutions. His final comment on the matter? “Democracy is the system” he likes best: here.

Having spent much of his adult life campaigning on issues including the arms trade, the illegality of the Iraq war and the misdeeds of Coca-Cola, comedian and activist Mark Thomas has now turned his attention to the ongoing financial crisis: here.

Britain: In a surprisingly bold move the TUC has invited Linton Kwesi Johnson to headline an event for its World Day for Decent Work. The day will focus on the impact of the international financial crisis on workers’ rights: here.

  1. Free Screenings Tonight of “Capitalism” for the Jobless and
    Homeless in America’s Hardest Hit Cities (plus local benefit
    premieres all across the country)

    Thursday, October 1st, 2009

    We’re just one day away from the widest opening I’ve ever had for any of my
    movies. Tomorrow, Friday, October 2nd, “Capitalism: A Love Story” opens on
    over a thousand screens across the United States, a record for an
    independent documentary.

    This follows last weekend’s limited opening in New York and L.A. where
    “Capitalism” set the box office record for the highest per screen average of
    ANY movie released so far this year. Not just any documentary — any MOVIE!
    It was, as the studio said, a good indicator of just how well the movie may
    do when it goes wide this weekend. I sincerely hope they’re right because I
    believe deeply in this film.

    To kick off the national release of “Capitalism: A Love Story,” I’ve asked
    the studio to offer a number of screenings in the nation’s hardest hit
    cities — the ones with the highest unemployment rates and highest
    foreclosure rates — where those who’ve lost their jobs or who are in
    foreclosure (or have already been evicted) may attend my film free of
    charge. They’ve agreed, and so tonight (Thursday), the night before our
    opening day, ten cities will grant you free admission if you have fallen on
    hard times. The list of theaters and cities is below. You don’t need to
    bring any “proof” of your situation — just show up — it’s the honor
    system, no questions asked.

    Of course, a free movie ain’t much when what you really need is a job or a
    place to live. And that’s not going to change until the party that controls
    both the Congress and the White House wakes up and realizes the American
    people put them in charge to fix the mess created by the previous
    administration. For that to happen requires the active involvement of each
    of us. And, as I show in this movie, it’s going to also require us to
    challenge some fundamental assumptions about an economic system that
    currently allows the wealthiest ONE PERCENT in this country to have more
    financial wealth than the bottom 95% combined. That concentration of money
    and power in the hands of so few people is, I believe, at the core of so
    many of our problems.

    So, if you’re going through tough times and you live in one of the areas
    below, please be my guest tonight, on the eve of my new film’s opening.
    Seating will be on a first come, first served basis.

    Also, in another five cities tonight, I have made the film available to
    local groups to hold benefit screenings to raise money for their local
    organizations — organizations which are working toward a day when a
    filmmaker doesn’t have to offer free screenings to people who’ve been put
    through the wringer. If you live in any of these areas (see below for the
    list of benefit premieres tonight), please come out and support the good
    work of these grassroots groups.

    So, until tomorrow, thanks for your support, and I’ll see ya at the movies!
