Overview

Opinionated documentary filmmaker Michael Moore takes an up-close look at the political leanings of college students in George W. Bush-era America with this effort shot during Moore's 60-city college campus tour in the months leading up to the 2004 election. The first feature-length film by a major director to make it's official premiere for free on the internet, Slacker Uprising finds Moore giving up any hope for making a profit on the film which was budgeted at $2 million in favor of getting his message out to the largest possible audience. That message? "Get off of the couch and give voting a chance." By taking the "Slacker Uprising Tour" to college campuses across the country and offering attendees a free change of underwear, a box of Ramen noodles, and a vow never to begin an event before noon nor allow any politician to speak at one of their events, Moore and his traveling band of speakers, comedians, and musicians managed to fill basketball arenas and football stadiums across the country with apathetic students who hungered for a serious sea change in the American political landscape. Featuring special appearances by R.E.M., Eddie Vedder, Viggo Mortensen, Roseanne Barr, Joan Baez, and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello.
