The price of freedom is so high, it can’t be underestimated, says author and filmmaker Michael Moore.
It’s the price we pay to live in a society that tolerates racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia.
It is a price we must all pay for our freedom, Moore says in his new documentary, “The Big Short,” which premieres Thursday at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Moore is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and the way he has tried to rein in the federal government.
The documentary follows Moore’s journey from being the first person to call Trump a “bully” on TV, to working for Trump and then being fired from Trump’s White House.
“The president is trying to tear down a whole system of American governance,” Moore says.
“He wants to bring in the worst and make it worse.”
“The price of liberty” premieres at the TIFF International Film Festival, Nov. 14-19.
Watch a trailer: “The Price Of Freedom” is based on the book by Michael Lewis, “Moneyball,” about the Oakland Athletics, who went from winning the World Series in 1996 to being swept out of the playoffs in 1997.
The film also stars the “Citizenfour” filmmaker Laura Poitras, the actor Ryan Gosling and the “The Good Wife” star Julianna Margulies.
The title comes from the movie in which Lewis, the Oakland Raiders owner, is depicted as a greedy owner who tried to take advantage of a baseball team that was in free fall.
“This is the real story,” Moore said in a statement.
“For a very long time, I’ve wanted to tell this story.
I’m grateful to have this platform, which is why I’m taking the time to do this film.
This is an opportunity to tell a new story, and to tell it from the perspective of a real-life hero who became an American hero.
This film is a big story about what it means to be an American, what it feels like to be a American, and how the American dream has become a lie.
I think people should be able to see this story in a different light.”
“A lot of people want to be on television and talk about their lives, their hopes and dreams and dreams that are not real,” Moore added.
“They want to have a big party and say, ‘I’m so proud of myself.’
But they’re not.
They’re not being proud of themselves.
It doesn’t mean that they’re doing anything wrong, it just means that they don’t understand what it’s like to live the American life.”
