Shades of Things Past...

We still talk a good game in this country, but the Reality is far harsher than most would care to admit. A great deal of what's wrong with the U.$. is thoroughly examined in SHADOWS OF LIBERTY; i.e., the manipulation of the Masses by The Media and those who control it. Nike's purchase of CBS's silence regarding sweatshops in Vietnam is just one of the dark deals this doc sheds light on; another is a case I don't recall even hearing about at the time: the possible accidental downing of a passenger plane (TWA 800) by the U.$. Navy. The circle-the-wagons efforts to bury the story are dragged kicking and screaming into the light- although nothing's been done about it to this day, as far as I can discern. SHADOWS OF LIBERTY doesn't stop there, but I'll leave it up to you to track it down and see it. In a company- uh, country- where politicians are bought and sold at their own version of a stock exchange, ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Commission, or Politico$ For $ale, for short), I think that it's about time that Republicans and Democrats who accept bribes (from "lobbyists") should be forced to wear the logos of their True Employers on their clothes.

Asks Questions Others Don't

A film that examines how we get to know what "the truth" is seems more important than ever, with news outlets shuttering and being bought up left and right - not to mention the rise of digital infotainment. as the Hollywood Reporter said, "The timing couldn't be better for a theatrical documentary about a corporate media monopoly in American journalism...Canadian director Jean-Philippe Tremblay...saw his film Shadows of Liberty receive a world premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, while he looks to the U.K. phone hacking scandal that has engulfed Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. to cross the Atlantic to help him secure a U.S. theatrical distribution deal. If anything, Tremblay questions why the major U.S. media has so far responded to shocking accusations of journalistic impropriety at Murdoch's former News of the World tabloid with barely a blink and a yawn."
