Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middleclass Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.
A 30-minute follow-up piece for Roger & Me, this was first shown when that film was broadcast as part of the PBS series P.O.V. Moore briefly re-examines the economic collapse of Flint and the changes that have taken place in the earlier movies' major figures, from Roger Smith down to the evicted tenants, as well as collateral material about the celebrity status of himself and the film.

I caught this on PBS years ago following a showing of Roger & Me. In it Michael Moore follows up on all the people he featured in the original doc. One nice thing I remember from seeing it was that Moore paid for 2 years of rent for everyone who was shown getting evicted in Roger & Me.
And they do follow up the Rabbit lady, and she now raises her Rabbit's for another use that's almost as shocking as watching her skin that rabbit the first time.
I have no idea how difficult this is to track down these days, but I'd say it's a must-see for any fans of the original Roger & Me.
