“Shadows of Liberty” Screened at UUF

A free screening of Shadows of Liberty, a documentary directed by Jean-Philippe Tremblay, will be showed on Sept. 17 at 4:30 pm at the UU Fellowship.

This film reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. The filmmaker has journeyed through the darker corridors of the U.S. 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.

Roy S. Gutterman, Director of the Tully Center for Free Speech and Associate Professor of Communications Law and Journalism at Syracuse University, declares, “After watching this film, you might think the greatest threat to free speech today is the media itself.”

The film is part of the monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
