The Detroit Newspaper Guild, CJAM 91.5 FM, and Wayne State University Bring Internationally Acclaimed ‘Shadows of Liberty’ Documentary to Detroit The Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour will come to Detroit. Film trailer: http://YouTube.com/watch?v=_SAUborWbPw RSVP: at link above, more info http://ShadowsOfLiberty.org Facebook: https://Facebook.com/events/1471295733110974 The documentary film Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. Filmmaker and film contributors are available for interviews between now and the screening. For more information and to review a film screener, call Debra at 720-917-4900 or email Debra@docfactory.org In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, AMY GOODMAN, DAVID SIMON, NORMON SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, DANIEL ELLSBERG and KRISTINA BORJESSON 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, there will be a panel discussion, moderated by Lou Grieco of the Newspaper Guild of Detroit. Panelists will include: Detroit Free Press staff writer Bill Laitner Deadline Detroit reporter Allan Lengel WCJM news director Zoran Kljajic Wayne State journalism professor Jack Lessenberry There is no fee to attend this event, although donations to support the Shadows of Liberty Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour are greatly appreciated.
