We heard POV alum Michael Moore (both Roger & Me and Pets or Meat aired on POV in 1992) was in our neighborhood doing some publicity for his new film Capitalism: A Love Story. So we hit the sidewalk, in true Michael Moore-style, to see if he’d speak to us on camera. Lo and behold, he’s still an avid fan of POV! Catch his message for POV’s Emmy-nominated filmmakers, and check back tomorrow for coverage of tonight’s Emmy ceremony at Lincoln Center. POV is up for 10 Emmy Awards and is the second most-nominated program after 60 Minutes.
(Special thanks to my POV colleague David Nanasi for his camera work on the clip.)
