of the most controversial and provocative films of the year,
Fahrenheit 9/11 is Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael
Moore's searing examination of the Bush administration's actions
in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. With his characteristic
humour and dogged commitment to uncovering the facts, Moore
considers the presidency of George W. Bush and where it has
led the US. He looks at how and why Bush and his inner circle
avoided pursuing the Saudi connection to 9/11, despite the
fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and Saudi money
had funded Al Qaeda. Fahrenheit 9/11 shows us a nation kept
in constant fear by FBI alerts and lulled into accepting a
piece of legislation, the USA Patriot Act, that infringes
on basic civil rights. It is in this atmosphere of confusion,
suspicion and dread that the Bush Administration makes its
headlong rush towards war in Iraq.
