Moore Takes ‘Sicko’ to Sacramento
Posted on Jun 9, 2007
Director Michael Moore will use his new documentary “Sicko” as an advocacy tool for healthcare reform on June 12, when he will testify before the California State Legislature in Sacramento about his film—a scathing critique of the U.S. healthcare system. Moore will also join nurses’ and doctors’ activist groups, as well as state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, for a rally at the state Capitol.
From the press release at MichaelMoore.com:
[California Nurses Association Executive Director Rose Ann] DeMoro, who attended a private screening in New York, notes that “SiCKO” is “not just an indictment of an indefensible healthcare industry in the U.S. It’s a rejoinder for those who think we can fix the soulless monster by tinkering with an unconscionable system that puts us further in thrall to those who created the crisis.”

Taking his show on the road: Michael Moore (pictured at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival) is no stranger to controversy and, with “Sicko,” he seems ready to stir up some more.
