This documentary reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media.
The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico, Central New Mexico Labor Council, Central New Mexico Move to Amend, Common Cause New Mexico, DocFactory, KUNM 89.9 FM, the Southwest Organizing Project, and Veterans for Peace invite you to attend a special screening of the internationally acclaimed film “Shadows of Liberty”.
The documentary film “Shadows of Liberty” reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. Film Trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SAUborWbPw
In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including AMY GOODMAN, DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, DAVID SIMON, NORMAN SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, JEFF COHEN, ROBERT MCCHESNEY,DANIEL ELLSBERG, JANINE JACKSON, CHRIS HEDGES, KRISTINA BORJESSON and JOHN NICHOLS 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.
Ultimately, has our commercial world caused us to lose one of the most precious commodities of all -- unbiased information?
After the screening, there will be a highly interactive panel discussion.
The film is coming to town as part of the 7th or 8th Leg of the Shadows of Liberty USA Screening & Media Reform Action Tour.
This is a free event with donations greatly appreciated.
