'Waiting for 'Superman'' director says 'I want this movie to change our schools'
Now Guggenheim tells OnTheRedCarpet.com "I want this movie to change our schools." He adds, "I want people to think that everybody can help every kid in America get a good education. "The documentary examines the American public school system and how it has failed its students as the cameras follow several kids through their daily school lives.
"Oprah is out there saying 'Go see this movie' and it's really, really exciting," Guggenheim said about the daytime talk show host's recent episode about the film, which also featured guest appearances by the families in the film and Bill Gates, who has donated millions to public schools.
"This is a little documentary and here we are at Paramount on a big red carpet thing. But I think everyone cares about school, no matter what political party, everyone wants great schools," Guggenheim said. "You know I'm surprised myself think that we're not at a moment where we have to face these things and the crisis is huge and it affects all of us but now it can be done."
