Manufacturing Dissent is a documentary from 2007 that examines Michael Moore, his filmmaking tactics, and how accurately he portrays the subjects of his documentaries. Canadian filmmakers Debbie Melnyk and Rick Caine originally intended the film to be biographical, and they tried to include interviews with Moore, but repeated attempts by the pair to arrange this were unsuccessful. As Melnyk and Caine took a closer look at the documentaries, they discovered certain factual misrepresentations. More details were uncovered, and the newfound information seemed to contradict the facts as they were presented in the film, a feat Moore perhaps achieved by careful editing of film footage. The movie also notes that Michael Moore is nearly peerless in his role as a liberal documentarian, and this alone gives him a sort of celebrity status. That distinction is seen by some as rather disingenuous, in light of his position as champion of the underdog. The movie focuses primarily on Moore's films "Roger and Me" and "Bowling for Columbine" and seeks to discover if the creative editing was merely to make the films more entertaining or to mislead and misrepresent the truth.moreless
