WMPG Benefit: Shadows of Liberty screening
WMPG, Southern Maine's Communty Radio station, in partnership with Local Sprouts Cooperative, will present a screening of an acclaimed social justice documentary about corporate control of the mass media. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit WMPG.

In Shadows of Liberty filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay explores the darker corridors of the American media landscape, where global conglomerates call the shots. 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?

The film features the voices of Danny Glover, Julian Assange, Dan Rather, Amy Goodman, David Simon, Daniel Ellsberg, Norman Solomon, Dick Gregory, Robert McChesney, John Nichols, Chris Hedges and many more.
