Description

Noam Chomsky is one of the great thinkers of our time and Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick's landmark masterpiece Manufacturing Consent effectively highlights and clarifies some of his most profound ideas on our present and future. His radical philosophy challenges our very notions of society and democracy that shake us out of our complacency. The film is a brilliant and expansive exploration of Chomsky's views on the media and its far-reaching power to shape our consciousness and undermine our principles.  The insights here have only become more relevant in the years since and many of Chomsky's writings have become eerily prescient. Manufacturing Consent is an exciting documentary that energetically keeps up with Noam Chomsky's train of thought.
