The news that Moore spoke to Berg while he was still in the United States only adds to the mystery surrounding the young man's presence in Iraq and tragic death. The interview was shot before the 26-year-old Berg left for Iraq late last year as a private contractor in the hopes of helping to rebuild the ravaged country.
Sara Berg said her brother told Moore's crew he was nervous about his safety in Iraq.
"He recognized it was a concern, and he kind of pointed out that he'd worked in difficult situations before," Sara Berg said from her home in Virginia Beach. "It's definitely something that he didn't shrug off."
She said her brother seemed enthusiastic in the footage.
David Berg, speaking from his home outside Newark, New Jersey, said it was "weird seeing Nick talk," but described the interview footage as dry.
The interview, which was not conducted by Moore, centered on the technical work Berg hoped to find repairing radio transmission towers for his company, Prometheus Methods Tower Service. Berg, 26 when he died, also talks about humanitarian work he did in Uganda and Kenya.
David Berg said Moore handled the situation with "dignity, respect and discipline."
"Michael Moore has really been a total class act with this whole thing," David Berg said. "He could have sold this to the media or stuck it in his movie."
Sara Berg said she saw the video footage as a "gift."

He's not using the footage so what line did he cross and how is it disgusting?

Why did the little pisher have to release to the press the fact he had the interview? Had he given the interview to the family and they chose to announce its existence, I would have had no problem. But to announce your "noble intentions" speaks volumes about your true motivation. Publicity.
