“Shadows of Liberty” explores the failures of U.S. corporate journalism to provide the scope and depth of information needed for a functioning democracy. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay relies on journalists, activists and academics for insider accounts of a broken media system in which a handful of corporations control the flow of much of the news the public sees. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
The event is sponsored by the Texas State Employees Union, Common Ground for Texans, Austin Move to Amend and KAZI 88.7 Austin Community Radio. More information online.
