Sheffield DocFest: Capitalism: A Love Story

Michael Moore Michael Moore’s latest documentary Capitalism: A Love Story, will screen at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinemas on Saturday 7th November at 2.30pm.

Capitalism: A Love Story returns to the issue that Michael Moore has been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans, and by default, the rest of the world. Taking filmgoers into uncharted territory with both humour and outrage, the film explores the price that America is paying for its love of capitalism. The American dream is looking more like a nightmare as families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings.

Director Michael Moore says: “This is the movie I’ve been making for the past twenty years. Since Roger & Me debuted in 1989, there have been common threads and ideas present in all of my projects. Capitalism: A Love Story is not just a continuation of that, it’s the culmination.

“My goal is to address the questions that have been forming in my head for some time and that I believe our society needs to address as well. It’s not the job of the artist or the musician or the filmmaker to follow the crowd. Politicians won’t change anything on their own.”

Tickets for the Saturday screening of Capitalism: A Love Story are available at £6.50 (£5.50 concessions) from the Showroom Box Office 0114 275 7727 or www.showroom.org.uk
