Shepard told Entertainment Weekly:
“I think the film’s fantastic because the title suggests one side of Michael Moore, but what you get is a side that most people probably haven’t seen,” says Fairey, who is donating 50 percent of the proceeds from the poster prints to two nonprofits, Rootstrikers and Represent.us. “Rather than attacking villains, the film is celebrating heroes with good ideas in other parts of the world, many of whom were inspired by people and ideas from the United States. Of all of Michael Moore’s films, I feel that this one has the most potential to break through to an audience that doesn’t already think they agree with him. [I was inspired by] a sense of humor and a love of political propaganda. Poking fun at the way many Americans see the U.S. as flag-waving ‘liberators,’ or purveyors of ‘democracy whether you like it or not.’ I wanted the art to mirror Michael’s approach to the film as an American narrator who may not know as much as he thinks he does.”
