SiCKO: June 21st screening in NYC

SickoposterI'll be attending a media screening of Michael Moore's SiCKO here in NYC this Thursday.

Cory was talking about how he was watching a copy on his laptop via a BitTorrent download.
It's been popping up on YouTube, and now on Google video, all to the consternation of the Weinstein Brothers who helped produce this $9 million film.

It seems that the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, has sent a letter to Moore stating that his trip to Havana to film sequences demonstrating their healthcare system was under investigation for violating the US trade embargo with Cuba. Regardless of what further action might take place, Moore has suggested that the film may be seized as part of the investigation, the film is now in the public domain, if you want to find it.

But Moore is also using YouTube by creating a group where viewers can produce their own video responses, documenting their experiences with the US healthcare system.

This is an extended interview of Moore by Amy Goodman, and it probably is the best account of the beginnings for this film.
