Shadows of Liberty (Thu. 30 Nov, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

“Shadows of Liberty” Documentary Screening and Local Media Panel

Thursday, Nov 30th, 2017 from 6-8:30 pm
James McConnell Memorial Library, 50 Falmouth St, Sydney
The film “Shadows of Liberty” (2012, 93 min) documents the extraordinary money and power behind the mainstream news media, as well as its moral and social failures that have turned an arena for public expression into a private profit zone.  It picks up where the film “Manufacturing Consent” left off.

A Panel Discussion will follow to reflect on the documentary from a local media point of view, with Moderator Ian McNeil and panelists Mary Campbell (Publisher/editor of the Cape Breton Spectator), Steve Sutherland (Host of CBC Cape Breton Information Morning), Rankin Macdonald (Editor of the Inverness Oran), and Andrew Brooks (Publisher/editor of the Victoria Standard).

If there is any truth to the idea that one must “Think Globally and Act Locally”, this is a global situation we must understand.

Presented by Cinema Politica in Cape Breton (Screening Truth to Power) in partnership with the Cape Breton Spectator and Gryphon Media Productions.

Everyone welcome.
