Moore film wins at Cannes — but will it be shown in the US?
From BBC Online report:
“Director Michael Moore’s controversial anti-Bush documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 has won the prestigious Palme d’Or best film award at the Cannes festival.
It was the first documentary to win the top prize since Jacques Cousteau’s The Silent World in 1956.
The film received a 15-minute standing ovation when it was screened on Monday.
Fahrenheit 9/11 explores the Iraq war and alleges connections between President George W Bush and top Saudi families, including the Bin Ladens.”
Hmmm… But will it be shown in the US? Disney was originally supposed to distribute it but — surprise, surprise — backed off.
