At the national AFL-CIO Convention in Pittsburgh last month, delegates, labor activists, and other attendees were treated to the world premier of Michael Moore’s latest film, Capitalism: A Love Story. When the film was over, Moore received a standing ovation from crowd.

“No matter what side of the political fence you’re on or what you think of Moore as an activist and provocateur, a film that explores the economic meltdown and its historical roots is something most of us can get our heads around. Capitalism is impassioned, informative and entertaining…His rallying cry is simple: The country needs to return to its democratic roots.”
–Claudia Puig, USA Today
“Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story is a blistering, mad-as-hell indictment of everything in America that, according to Moore, has led to our current state of economic peril. The back-scratching greed and corruption, the cult of Wall Street as a casino for elites, the subprime mortgage vendors who operated like loan sharks: Moore pulls the big picture together…urgent, unsettling, and mischievously funny.”
