Davis Media Access and DocFactory brings Internationally Acclaimed 'Shadows of Liberty' Documentary to Davis.
Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour will make its Davis debut at Davis Media Access, 1623 Fifth Street, Davis, CA, on December 18 at 7pm. The documentary film Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control.
In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including Danny Glover, Julian Assange, Dan Rather, Amy Goodman, David Simon, Norman Solomon, Bob Bear, Roberta Baskin, John Macarthur, Robert McChesney, Daniel Ellsberg, Janine Jackson, Chris Hedges, Kristina Borjesson and John Nicols 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.
Shadows of Liberty is dedicated to the journalists and information freedom fighters, the heroes of our time, who dedicate their lives to our right to freedom of information - the central pillar of a free society. Shadows of Liberty provides a platform for voices that have been silenced and in doing so, attempts to inspire change and accountability.
This film champions the idea of an independent media where truth and integrity are the norm, not the exception. After the screening, none other than Roberta Baskin will be skyping in to have a conversation with us. Roberta is featured in the film and has served as the Executive Director of the Center for Public Integrity, the senior Washington correspondent for NOW with Bill Moyers, senior investigative producer for the ABC newsmagazine 20/20, chief investigative correspondent for the CBS newsmagazine 48 Hours,and contributed special reports to the CBS Evening News.
This is a free event, with donations greatly appreciated to support Davis Media Access and the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour.
