"Rachel Corrie" Movie Features at Film Fest

From Indiewire:
The Traverse City Film Festival has announced what founder Michael Moore says is “the best movie lineup in its five-year history.” The 2009 edition of the festival - which runs July 28 through Aug 2 - is set to screen 71 features and short films representing more than 30 countries and five continents.

“Greetings from Tehran” and “Palestine and Vine” are two sections of the film festival featuring works from the Middle East, including the new documentary, “Rachel,” about the life and death of Rachel Corrie, an American who sacrificed her life to help the Palestinian people.

“We’re bringing at least one, maybe two, Palestinian filmmakers,” Moore said. “At this time in history, more than ever, we need to hear voices from that part of the world that are not filtered by the Western media.” Full list of Films can be seen here
