The Ant-Society presents: The Other M.J. (1999)

Documentary about a man named Michael Johnson, a janitor at United Center, the home of the Chicago Bulls. (The title refers to this connection between the subject and basketball star Michael Jordan.)

Johnson talks about his life and history and also about his views on race, politics, and survival. Johnson was taped again a few years later with updates on his situation and commenting on the impact being on television has had on his life. Some of the original footage was used in a program called None of the Above, which investigated Americas non-voters.
