Nevada City woman works as producer on new Michael Moore movie

Nevada City resident Cory Fisher was well versed with journalism before jumping into the film industry.

Having worked for the Los Angeles Times and the Tahoe Daily Tribune at different points in her career, including a bout as a high school teacher, Fisher’s research and interviewing skills were invaluable for her when she was hired by Michael Moore’s sister and fellow Nevada City resident Anne Moore to help create a teacher’s guide for the film “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Since then, she’s worked with the Moores on “Sicko” and the soon-to-be released “Capitalism: A Love Story” as a producer, using her journalistic skills for the filmmaker’s politically charged documentaries.
