This is viewer supported news

At the Cannes film festival, Michael Moore’s "Fahrenheit 9/11" became the first documentary in nearly 50 years to take the festival’s coveted top prize the Palme d’Or. During his acceptance speech he said, "I want to make sure if I do nothing else for this year that those who have died in Iraq have not died in vain."

In a matter of weeks Michael Moore’s "Fahrenheit 9/11" has gone from the documentary Disney did not want you to see to the most talked about film in the world. On Saturday Moore took home the prestigious Palme d’Or in Cannes. We play his acceptance speech, and replay his Oscar appearance last year as well as an excerpt from an interview Moore did with Democracy Now! on the day his book Dude, Where is My Country? came out.
