Moore has expert role in film about imagination

Thomas Moore is featured in the new documentary/drama, People v. The State of Illusion, set in the "Old Main Prison" of New Mexico State Penitentiary. According to Bah Video: The plot follows Aaron Roberts, "a single father who is arrested and tried on manslaughter and assault charges following an incident that claims the life of a woman. Following his conviction and imprisonment, Aaron's daughter is sent to a State home for children because there are no other family members to care for her. While in the State home, an attorney learns of her plight and the story of her father, and decides to represent her in an innovative and surprising case against the State."

This description includes, ""Directed by award winning Director Scott Cervine, and written and produced by Austin Vickers, this movie explores the science and power of perception and imagination and the prison walls of habitual thought and behavior that we all create, and documents the evidence that answers the central questions of this provocative film, "what is real" and "can people really change?"
