*ABOUT SHADOWS OF LIBERTY: *Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary 
truth behind the news media: censorship, cover‐ups and corporate 
control. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes an intrepid journey 
through the darker corridors of the American media landscape, where 
global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming 
influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values.  In 
highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics 
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.  Tracing the story of media manipulation through 
the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let 
a handful of powerful corporations write the news?

*FEATURING**: *Danny Glover, Julian Assange, Dan Rather, Amy Goodman,
