Directed by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay, SHADOWS OF LIBERTY takes an intrepid journey through the darker corridors of the American media landscape, where global media conglomerates exercise extraordinary political, social, and economic power. The overwhelming collective power of these firms raises troubling questions about democracy.
Unravelling the story of media privatization and increasing censorship, Tremblay compiles riveting interviews with renowned journalists, activists and academics including Julian Assange, Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Rebecca Lichtenfeld, John Pilger, and many more. Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, SHADOWS OF LIBERTY poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful private corporations write the news?
