Manufacturing Dissent: Uncovering Michael Moore

Filmmakers Debbie Melnyk and Rick Caine set out to make a biography of Michael Moore, holding him in high esteem as both a documentarian and an activist. However they soon found tracking down their subject to be as diificult as it had been for Moore to corner the elusive Roger Smith in his seminal anti-corporate film, 'Roger and Me'. As they followed Moore on his promotional tour for 'Fahrenheit 9/11', unable to secure an interview, they continued to research his filmmaking techniques, discovering that even in the fact-based documentary format, you can't always believe everything you see.
