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 AMY GOODMAN, DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, DAVID SIMON, NORMAN SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, DANIEL ELLSBERG, JANINE JACKSON, CHRIS HEDGES, KRISTINA BORJESSON and JOHN NICHOLS 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. After the screening, there will be a highly interactive panel discussion. The panel will be moderated by Linda Olson-Osterlund, host of KBOO's A Deeper Look, and will include Theresa Mitchell, host of KBOO's PressWatch, and Madelyn Elder, the President of Communication Workers of America Local 7901. 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. The film is coming to town as a part of the 6th Leg of the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour. This is a free event with donations to support KBOO Community Radio and the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour greatly appreciated. http://shadowsofliberty.org/
