Program Council to show film from controversial filmmaker

Program Council will be showing “Bowling for Columbine” tonight in the LSC Theater at 7:30 p.m. The movie is an independent film by Michael Moore and Michael Donovan.

According to a synopsis, Moore uses the high school shootings in Columbine as a touchstone for his wide-ranging exploration of the culture of guns and gun violence in the United States. “Bowling for Columbine” was Moore and Donovan’s first Academy Award nomination.

Laura Sringel, chair for the movie showing, said “The movie deals with current social and political issues that are important to every individual. People should come and see this movie to help them make educated decisions about issues related to our country dealing with guns and violence.”

According to michaelmoore.com, “Bowling for Columbine is an alternatively humorous and horrifying film about the United States. It is a film about the state of the Union, about the violent soul of America.”

The film makes viewers ask questions such as: Why do 11,000 people die in America each year at the hands of gun violence? Or what set the U.S. apart from other countries?
