American filmmaker, author, social critic, and liberal activist
Michael Moore is an award-winning American director, author, and political commentator. He has spent over a decade making controversial movie documentaries about the problems in American society. He is especially critical of the presidency of President George W. Bush. He has also criticized globalization and large corporations, gun ownership and the American health care system.
Moore is the director and producer of three of the top five money-making documentaries of all time. ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ examined the political climate after the 2001 attacks; ‘Sicko’ highlighted the ills of American healthcare; and ‘Bowling for Columbine’ probed America’s widespread gun culture and its relation to violence. He uses a mixture of hard-hitting fact and humour in all of his work.
