According to the press release from distributor Overture Films, the film-
Will explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore has described as “the biggest robbery in the history of this country” – the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions.
Perhaps not so co-incidentally, the release date is a year and a day after the United States Senate voted for a $700 billion bailout package for Wall Street. It is also just two months short of the 20th anniversary of the release of Moore’s first documentary, Roger And Me.
Given its proximity, I would not be surprised if this new documentary bows a few days ahead of October 2 at the New York Film Festival.
