This Divided State, a film about the controversy that erupted at Utah Valley State College last year when director Michael Moore was invited to its campus, will be shown tonight in the SUB II Ballroom on the Fairfax Campus at 7 p.m. The showing, sponsored by the Program Board, is free and open to all.
Filmed by the young director Steven Greenstreet, the documentary chronicles the intense free speech debate, cash bribes, threats of violence, and other astonishing events that followed the announcement that Moore would appear at the college. Greenstreet, 25, and his crew captured material that would form the feature that not only documents the political divide in Utah County, but also mirrors the current national divide. Greenstreet will make brief comments and answer questions immediately following the screening. For more information, call the Program Board at 703-993-2925.
