Filmmaker Michael Moore’s new film, Slacker Uprising, is skipping theaters and will be released online as a free download. The film follows Moore during his 62-city tour during the 2004 election that was aimed at firing up the youth vote.
Though he cites Radiohead as inspiration for this free web release, Moore is no stranger when it comes to his movies showing up online. Last year, Moore cried foul when his movie Sicko leaked online before its release in theaters.
Slacker Uprising will be available starting Sept. 23 for three weeks as a free download on Blip.tv.
