“Borat” Premiere Proves Eventful

"Borat" Premiere Proves Eventful

Live animals, technical difficulties and Michael Moore were among the highlights at the premiere of the controversial “Borat Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” last night. After a memorable arrival from the film’s star Sasha Baron Cohen on a horse drawn cart driven by two women dressed as Kazakhstan prostitutes, Kris Abel
reports that things did not run so smoothly. Twenty-minutes into the sold-out screening, the film projector broke, leading Cohen, director Larry Charles, and audience member Moore to take the stage. After over an hour of stalling, the projector was deemed unable to be fixed, and the screening was rescheduled for tonight. [Peter Knegt]
