On Saturday, October 19 from 9 p.m. to midnight ET, MSNBC will air a special screening of Michael Moore’s Oscar-winning documentary Bowling for Columbine, along with an all-new interview between the filmmaker and The Beat host Ari Melber.
Originally released 17 years ago, the film explores the circumstances leading up to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre and why few nations have the level of gun violence that the United States has.
After the screening, Moore and Melber take a look at what has occurred in the two decades since and discuss the ongoing gun violence epidemic in a new interview that accompanies the documentary Saturday night.
MICHAEL MOORE ON ENDURING GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA:
“The day the Columbine shooting happened, that afternoon, my crew and I decided we have to do something about this. We have to make a documentary about this and we have to make sure that there is not another – I remember saying this that day – that there is never another school shooting. Sadly now we are some 17 years later and there was more than one Columbine.
A special screening of Bowling for Columbine airs Saturday, October 19 at 9 p.m. on MSNBC.
