An Oscar-winning documentary based on the  1999 massacre at an American High School in Colorado that shocked the world,  Bowling for Columbine  is filmmaker Michael Moore's take on the culture of firearms violence that is seemingly exclusive to the states - particularly in schools. Released in 2013 but with huge, tragic resonance today, this critically acclaimed documentary is an essential watch.

Director and political activist Michael Moore, author of Stupid White Men, takes a 'bemused and bitter' look at the gun laws in America that have cost so many lives - and lives of children. Moore confronts supermarket chains, the media and even pro-gun lobbyist and actor Charlton Heston (as President of the National Rifle Association).

The title  is drawn  from two fatal shootings in the town of Columbine: the first and most notorious was the mass shooting of pupils at Columbine High by two of its pupils in 1999; and the second, another fatal shooting, two years after at the bowling alley of the town (which the two students had gone to  prior to their killing spree in 1999). Â

Featuring  a combination of interviews, stats, historical documentary footage, cartoon animation and the set-ups familiar to fans of his  TV Nation  series, Moore  obtains  horrific and shocking truths about gun proliferation in America. Â

What the press said: Â

Funny, shrewd, righteous, hard to deny,  Bowling for Columbine  is uncomfortable and irresistible filmmaking. --David Stubbs

This documentary was clearly a journey of discovery for Moore himself, who makes no bones about not having the answers. Refreshing, but exasperating too - the Guardian Â
