Steven Greenstreet's "This Divided State": Free Showing and Discussion on University of Kentucky's Campus, April 18th


Watch a video preview of the movie

25 year-old movie director Steven Greenstreet (former BYU student filmmaker!) will be visiting the University of Kentucky Campus to promote his feature length documentary "This Divided State". He will also be available for a student question and answer moderated by our own Dr. Voss following the *exclusive Lexington premiere!

THIS DIVIDED STATE (a documentary about what happens when right meets left in a political debate gone wild, starring Michael Moore and Utah residents, students and activists...)
April 18th at 7 pm
W.T. Young Library Auditorium.
The event is free to the public and the movie has gotten very good reviews and press.

Short Description:
When students at a conservative small-town Utah college invite Michael Moore to speak on campus, an epic free speech debate ensues complete with cash bribes, threats of violence, a visit from Sean Hannity, and a Michael Moore look-alike. Brigham Young University student Steven Greenstreet captures the action.

The Center for American Progress is helping to promote Greenstreet's current tour (he's been invited to do Q & A sessions at many universities nationally, including Princeton, Yale, and others). In D.C. his movie was shown in the same theatre / advertised together with the documentary BORN INTO BROTHELS, which received rave reviews and when the screening time arrived for Mr.Greenstreet's movie, the line was out the door.

We would very much like to get the word out---as it will be the only showing in Lexington---to people in the community (especially students!) who might be
interested in its content and the questions it raises.
