Director and producer

Tribute

He walks his camera along the paths and, with his only word, stands up to the most ferocious men of power. Michael Moore is an American hero, protecting his country from its worst enemy: the United States. From one film to another, he seeks to dissipate an American dream built on mirages: employers' omnipotence with Roger and I ou The Big One, carrying a weapon in Bowling for Columbine, the postcolonial military policy of Georges W. Bush in Farhenheit 9/11, the greed of the health system in SiCKO or the drifts of the economic model in Capitalism: A Love Story. In almost thirty years of artistic activism, Michael Moore has established himself as a master in the matter, kneading reality and fiction to extract all the truth.

The American Film Festival will pay tribute to him in his presence. On this occasion, the Festival will preview its new film Where to Invade Next, before its theatrical release on September 7.
