Where to Invade Next is an expansive, entertaining and subversive comedy that casts Oscar-winning director Michael Moore in the role of “invader” as he visits various countries to learn how the United States could improve its own prospects. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine returns with this hilarious and revealing “battle cry”. The solutions to the United States’ most deeply-rooted problems are already out there in the world – they’re just waiting to be used.

Michael Moore was born in Flint, Michigan. A former Boy Scout who attended a diocesan seminary, at the age of 18 he became one of the youngest people in the US to be elected to public office. At 22 he created The Flint Voice, a nationally renowned alternative weekly newspaper. In 1989 he made his first film, the box office hit Roger & Me, which ultimately led to his current documentary endeavours. Moore broke records in cinemas once more in 2002 with the Oscar-winning Bowling for Columbine, and then again with Fahrenheit 9/11, which won a Palme d’Or in Cannes. Other films of note include Sicko, nominated for an Oscar, and Capitalism: A Love Story. Moore won an Emmy for his TV Nation series and is one of America’s best-selling non-fiction authors, with books like Stupid White Men and Dude, Where’s My Country? Moore lives in Traverse City, Michigan, where he founded the Traverse City Film Festival and two art house cinemas, State Theatre and Bijou by the Bay.
