Watch: Michael Moore Explains New Documentary ‘Where to Invade Next’

The Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday unveiled its 2015 lineup, which will include the latest project from political filmmaker Michael Moore.

Where to Invade Next,” Moore’s first new film in six years, has been kept tightly under wraps. In a Periscope video posted on Twitter, Moore said, “It’s a film of epic nature.”

“(There’s) this constant need it seems to always have an enemy — where’s the next enemy so we can keep this whole military industrial complex alive, and keep the companies that make a lot of money from this in business?” Moore said of the inspiration for the film, which was filmed across three continents. “I’ve always been a little bothered by that, so that’s where the comedy comes from.”

“The issue of the United States at infinite war is something that has concerned me for quite some time, and provides the necessary satire for this film,” he went on.

The festival’s website calls “Where to Invade Next” Moore’s “most provocative and hilarious film yet.”

“Moore tells the Pentagon to ‘stand down’ — he will do the invading for America from now on,” the TIFF description states.

“Where to Invade Next” is produced by Dog Eat Dog Films and IMG. The Toronto International Film Festival runs Sept. 10-20.
