Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news?

By exploring a series of fabrications and cover-ups, director Jean-Philippe Tremblay demonstrates powerfully just how the news we read and view is shaped by big business and government agendas. Mixing revealing interviews, reconstructions, animation, archive material and insider accounts, director Jean-Philippe Tremblay explores the state of the U.S. media today and asks if the dominance of commercial interests makes unbiased reporting impossible to find.

Director Jean-Philippe Tremblay will join us for a post-screening Q&A.

"The timing couldn't be better for a theatrical documentary about a corporate media monopoly in American journalism." - Hollywood Reporter
