This internationally acclaimed documentary film reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control!!!
In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, AMY GOODMAN, DAVID SIMON, NORMON SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, ROBERTA BASKIN, & DANIEL ELLSBERG 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.
Shadows Of Liberty is dedicated to the journalists and information freedom fighters, the heroes of our time, who dedicate their lives to our right to freedom of information - the central pillar of a free society. Shadows of Liberty provides a platform for voices that have been silenced and in doing so, attempts to inspire change and accountability. This film champions the idea of an independent media where truth and integrity are the norm, not the exception.
There will be a thrilling POST-SCREENING CONVERSATION with filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay, Norman Solomon, Pratap Chatterjee and other special guests, moderated by Mickey Huff, Director of Project Censored. There will also be a presentation of the Bertha Foundation’s BEN BAGDIKIAN AWARD that will be accepted by DANIEL ELLSBERG, and the surviving family of GARY WEBB, for his courageous and groundbreaking journalism.
Tickets are only $15, or $35 for the post-screening Up Close and Personal intimate reception at historic KPFA Free Speech Radio at 1929 MLK, Jr. Way, one block north of University Ave, with filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay and special guests.
There will be an encore screening at the Netroots Nation Conference on Saturday, June 22, 6:00 PM at the San Jose Convention Center. This screening is free to conference participants and $15 for all others at the door.
