"The Yes Men Fix The World" Movie Premiere

Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" Will Find a Ready Audience Mark Weisbrot

When I first met Michael Moore more than 20 years ago he was showing a half-finished documentary to a few dozen people in a classroom in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

He had taken a second mortgage on his house - equipment for filmmaking was a lot more expensive back then - and raised some money from like-minded locals for a long-shot venture. We all loved what he showed us but thought he would be lucky if a few thousand people got to see it.
