March Free Movie Night: Shadows of Liberty: Corporate Media

“Change the Media, Change the World.”

Monday, March 16th, 7-9pm, 39 E. Central St., Natick, MA

Shadows of Liberty

Our founding fathers told us that the only weapon The People have is an informed public.

Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots.

For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone.

Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? Media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental.Shadows of Liberty Film Synopsis
