Moore Takes Steps To Protect Film

LATEST: Documentary filmmaker MICHAEL MOORE has locked the negative of his new film SICKO away to make sure government officials can't confiscate the project ahead of its 29 June (07) release. The controversial director faces jail after reportedly breaking trade laws to make parts of his hard-hitting new movie, which takes aim at America's health system. And, as he fights allegations his trip to Cuba to shoot footage was illegal, Moore isn't worried about jail time - he fears his film could be confiscated. He says, "We've responded to the government, saying we did not break the law, that this is the work of journalism. They want us to name the names of the people that we took there and I won't do that. "We've taken the necessary precautions to protect the negative of the film so that it can't be confiscated. The next move is theirs."
