Michael Moore's controversial new film 'Fahrenheit 9/11' is to be released in Ireland on 9 July.

'Fahrenheit 9/11' had been widely acclaimed as one of the most controversial films this year.

Centring on the actions of Bush's administration in the wake of the September 11 attacks, it investigates where the presidency of George W Bush has led the United States.

The film controversially looks at why President Bush did not pursue the Saudi connection to the attacks, despite the fact that Saudi money was being pumped into Al Qaeda and fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were Saudis.

'Fahrenheit 9/11' took the top prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it was premiered, making Moore the first documentary maker to win the award since 1956.
