MICHAEL MOORE DOCUMENTARY TO GO ON 22 COLLEGE TOUR

Orem, Utah___Minority Films and the Center for American Progress proudly announced this week the national college tour of the controversial new documentary film, This Divided State.

Steven Greenstreet, director and producer of This Divided State, has been invited by the Center for American Progress and its sub-division Campus Progress to screen the film at 22 colleges around the nation including Harvard, Yale, NYU, and USC.

This Divided State follows the explosion of community protest surrounding Michael Moore’s visit to Utah Valley State College (UVSC) in October 2004. Though UVSC is located in one of the strongest Republican strongholds in the United States, vehement opposition to liberal filmmaker Michael Moore’s visit was much greater than anticipated. Death threats, hate mail, bribes, and lawsuits were all candidly captured on film. Equally surprising, however, was the overwhelming “uprising” of students in support of Michael Moore. Additionally, since the controversy took place in Utah, a heated religious debate broke out as to whether Mormons can profess to be liberal without betraying their religion.

The national tour will begin in Washington D.C. on March 23rd 2005 at the E Street Theater and then will move throughout the nation during the following 5 weeks. The screenings (except the D.C. premiere) all take place on college campuses and are free of charge.

Michael Moore has been invited to attend the D.C. premiere.
