Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival makes Thugs an Official Selection

Posted on 19 August 2015 | Comments Off

One of my hero’s has always been Michael Moore. Since I saw Roger & Me, I have loved the way he blends pop culture and sarcasm into the documentary format. So it goes without saying I was giddy to find out that Prescription Thugs was going to be an official selection at his Traverse City Film Festival this year!! Chris Bell was in attendance and said that Michael himself had nothing but great things to say about the film. WOW!! I’m humbled.
