Filmmaker Michael Moore’s stop at USF has been rescheduled for noon Sunday. Moore was originally scheduled to appear Friday, before Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry was announced in his place.
Moore sparked controversy earlier this year with his documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which attacked President George W. Bush’s response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the war in Iraq. Now, he comes to Tampa as part of his 60-city “Slacker Uprising Tour” to promote political awareness in college students.
Other works by Moore include the documentary Bowling for Columbine and the books Stupid White Men and Dude, Where’s My Country?.
Moore will close a busy political week in Tampa. Reform Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader visited Tampa on Wednesday, while Kerry comes to USF and Bush to St. Petersburg on Friday.
The event is open to the public and tickets are $5.
