I was lucky enough to have a friend get me a ticket for the premiere of the documentary of 'I Am Because We Are' at the Traverse City Film Festival.
The movie is a little bit about Madonna and her trip there, but mostly about Malawi and the people. It is a very good movie. I highly recommend it. If you would like to know more you can also go to www.iambecauseweare.com
Here are some highlights of the screening....
Michael Moore, Madonna's Father and Stepmother were there along with Lola and Guy Oseary, her manager.
The arrival outside the theater was out of control, I could not get a good picture!
Michael introduced her and she came out and looked amazing! The place went nuts.
It was really good to see her as a person. She talked about the film and about her friendship with Michael Moore. They are really kind of funny with each other.
He let it slip she is going to be playing Detroit on the new tour.
After her talk she walked back to her seat and Lola jumped up hugged her and gave her a kiss as if she was proud of her mother. It was really sweet!
After the movie she same back up and talked some more.
We sang Happy Birthday to her, per Michael starting it up!
Once she was out of the building Michael and Nathan Rissman, the director took questions.
