Filmmaker Michael Moore visits various countries to examine how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues. From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland, and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs. Through his travels, we discover just how different America is from the rest of the world.

Sponsors: Our co-sponsor for the screening is WAmend. See their website at www.wamend.org for details of their good works. Initiative 735 is a grassroots movement to make Washington the 18th state to ask Congress to overturn Citizens United. In 2010, the US Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v FEC that corporations and unions could spend unlimited amounts of money to advocate for or against political candidates. It has led to obscene amounts of money being poured into elections. It's part of the reason why the amount spent on elections by campaigns and outside groups grew 555% from 1984 to 2014.
