iW Video | John Pierson on Michael Moore, "Roger & Me," and "Manufacturing Dissent"

Among the films that have had people talking at SXSW this year is “Manufacturing Dissent,” a new documentary critical of Michael Moore.

In an iW Video clip (link to YouTube clip), film professor and former film rep John Pierson, who shepherded Moore’s breakthrough to wider awareness in 1989, talks about Michael Moore, “Roger & Me” and the new doc, “Manufacturing Dissent.” As indieWRE reported in a Dispatch from SXSW earlier this week, among the hot topics is whether Michael Moore actually did conduct an interview with GM chief Roger Smith in “Roger & Me.”
