OREM, Utah (AP) -- A former Brigham Young University film student has maxed out his credit cards to make a 10-thousand dollar documentary about filmmaker Michael Moore's controversial visit to Utah Valley State.

Steven Greenstreet cut the 102 minute production, called "This Divided State," from 66 hours of interview and event footage. The film is premiering Thursday at a UVSC Theater, and Greenstreet is trying to find a distributor to release the movie in other theaters.

As with Moore's 40-thousand dollar visit in October, the movie is stirring some emotions.

Kay Anderson, a real estate broker who offered student leaders 25-thousand dollars to rescind Moore's invitation, has written a letter to Greenstreet's lawyer asking that his interviews not appear in the film.

But the 25-year-old and his lawyer say they're going to stay.

Anderson says he might consider legal action.
