MUMBAI: US president George Bush has been in the news a lot though not necessarily for the right reasons. Earlier this year, Michael Moore's documentary Farenheit 9/11 which examined how Bush used 9/11 to manipulate the American public won the Palm d'or at Cannes.
To counter this, a new documentary from Grizzly Adams Productions (GAP) George W. Bush: Faith in the White House will release shortly on DVD and VHS.
It will then debut on network TV next month. Towards the end of the year it could enter cinema halls. The documentary's producer David W. Balsiger added, "George W. Bush: Faith in the White House reveals a positive side of President Bush never reported by the news media. We have interviewed people who have encountered Bush in a faith-based way. Our documentary reveals that this is the most faith-based presidency since Abraham Lincoln."
The documentary claims to balance credible research with candid testimony from both critics and presidential contacts that document Bush's faith and prayer life. Balsiger further added that the documentary had been produced independently of any contact with the White House, the Bush Administration or influence from the Bush-Cheney Election Campaign. "It is based entirely on independent research and in part on two best-selling books."
As far as Farenheit 9/11 is concerned there have been reports suggesting that Moore might push Bush as a possible nominee for best actor at next year's Oscar Awards.
