Last fall, an invitation to director Michael Moore to visit Utah Valley State College caused so much controversy that a young filmmaker decided to capture the moment. This Divided State, directed by former Brigham Young University student Steven Greenstreet, shows what happened: an intense free speech debate, cash bribes, threats of violence, a Michael Moore look-alike, even a competing appearance by TV pundit Sean Hannity.
Now, Campus Progress and the Center for American Progress invite you to attend the D.C. premiere of the new film This Divided State, on March 23 at 7 p.m. at the E St. Cinema as part of our new Reel Progress film series.
The national news media have discovered This Divided State, and now you can, too. In advance, you can check out on-line scenes from This Divided State, which will launch our Campus Progress/Reel Progress traveling campus film series.
There will be brief remarks by Greenstreet and a special guest before the film, and a question and answer period immediately following the screening.

Steven Greenstreet, 25, first began work with documentary film in 2001 on the project “Futonmaker.” He and John Kinhart, director of the film, both filmed and edited the hour-long feature, which explores the life of Melchizedek Todd, a young African-American man who worked in a futon factory in downtown Baltimore. Greenstreet and Kinhart collaborated again in 2002; their second documentary “Non-Player Character” studies the life and imagination of role-playing gamers and stand-up comedians. Since moving to Utah in 2003, Greenstreet has worked extensively with the Utah film community, including the LDS Motion Picture Studio, Halestorm Entertainment, and countless movie, television, and commercial productions. He edited Halestorm’s DVD release of “It’s Latter-day Night!” and recently worked as a production assistant with Anthony Hopkins on “The World’s Fastest Indian.” As Greenstreet covered the Michael Moore controversy at Utah Valley State College in October 2004, he and his crew captured the provocative material that would be used to create This Divided State, a feature that not only documents the political divide in Utah County, but also mirrors the current national divide.
