Michael Moore's New Documentary "The Big One" Will Screen as a Benefit for fired & locked-out Detroit Newspaper Workers ==========================================

The "Big One" was filmed during Michael Moore's book tour for "Downsize This." The film includes trips to 47 cities hit by massive corporate downsizing and firings. Moore is the director of "Roger & Me," the largest-grossing documentary film of all time. He is also the creator and host of "TV Nation," which won an Emmy Award in 1995. His other films include "Canadian Bacon" (an official selection of the 1995 Cannes International Film Festival) and "Pets or Meat: The return to Flint." In 1995 he highlighted the Detroit Newspaper strike for "TV Nation" with a vist by Crackers, the crime fighting chicken. That show reached more than 20 million viewers nationwide.
