Michael Moore Returns to Toronto With ‘Roger & Me’s’ 25th Anniversary

15 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Moore will hit the 2014 Toronto Intl. Film Festival for a special 25th anniversary screening of his 1989 documentary “Roger & Me,” and will participate in a keynote conversation to kick off the industry conference’s two-day doc event.

“Roger & Me” premiered in Toronto and won the People’s Choice Award in 1989. Its 25th anniversary, Moore said in a statement, is a bittersweet milestone. “On the one hand, the film has affected the millions who’ve seen it and it has strongly influenced what is a now-thriving documentary movement,” he said, adding, “the fact that ‘Roger & Me’ is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago is a travesty. Actually, it’s more than that. At least in 1989, there were still 50,000 General Motors jobs left in Flint. Today, there are but 4,000 Gm jobs that remain in Flint, the birthplace of General Motors.”

Tiff director and CEO Piers Handling recalled how the film took Toronto by storm. »
