Manufacturing Dissent is a documentary that seeks to separate fact, fiction and legend. It tracks Michael Moore on tour during the release of the explosive FAHRENHEIT 9/11, all the while chronicling the politically supercharged climate in America that has fuelled Moore's transition from filmmaker to icon of the political left.
From the directors
"We didn't want this to be a hit on Michael, but a balanced look at who this cultural icon of the American left truly is and how he has affected American politics. We also wanted to examine how the culture of celebrity affects the public's view of hot button issues. What we never anticipated was Michael Moore's reluctance to be involved with like-minded filmmakers in a profile of him. We also had no idea there are so many skeletons in his closet"
