This is director Michael Moore’s documentary on what happened to the United States after 9/11. The film won the top award at the Cannes Film Festival. The New York Times describes it as a film that “would be, depending on your politics, either a rousing call to arms or an irresponsible provocation” and a film that “is worth seeing, debating and thinking about, regardless of your political allegiances.” The film has an R rating.Our guest scholar for the evening is Dr. Robert Sterken, who will provide some commentary and help answer questions after the screening. Dr. Sterken teaches introductory courses in political science as well as several upper-level and graduate courses: International Law and Organizations, Global Leadership, International Political Economy, and American Foreign Policy.This event is free and open to the public.About the September Project: Since 2004, libraries around the world have organized events about freedom and issues that matter to their communities during the month of September. This grassroots project favors free over fee, public over private, and voices over silence.
