Programme 2012

Shadows of Liberty

Jean-Philippe Tremblay / 2012 / UK / 93’

 Sat 23 June / 14:00 AV Hill Theatre


Shadows of Liberty looks at the media crisis in the United States and the relationship between the press, government, and the incredible political and economic power of corporations. The film uncovers stories of journalists, blocked from pursuing news because of its impact on business and people censored, for speaking out against abuses of corporate and government power. As UK headlines are dominated by stories of press transgressions, Shadows of Liberty sheds light on what we understand as a free press.


Followed by panel discussion with director and guests
