METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Talks Politics; Video Available

Why Democracy?, a documentary project using film to start a global conversation about democracy, has posted a nine-minute video interview with METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich in which he answers ten questions on his views about the system of government. Watch it below.

Why Democracy? states on its web site: "October 8th, 2007 marks the start of the most ambitious factual media event in broadcast history. More than 35 broadcasters worldwide, a global web presence and an international newspaper are working together for the first time ever to debate the dominant political issue of our time. They are asking the question: Why Democracy?

"At the heart of the season are 10 documentaries made by prestigious filmmakers from across the planet. With subjects ranging from US torture methods to the election of a class monitor in a Chinese primary school, from Che Guevara to the Danish cartoons scandal — the films take a wide-ranging and in-depth look at the world we live in today.

"Ten questions permeate the Why Democracy? season. We are interviewing world leaders, celebrities, intellectuals and everyday people, to find out what their answers are."
