Manufacturing Consent / Part 1

  • Canada
Audio Tracks 

Funny, provocative and surprisingly accessible, Manufacturing Consent is an energetic fusion of images and ideas that explores the political life and ideas of the controversial American writer, linguist, and social philosopher Noam Chomsky. According to citation indexes, Chomsky is the most-cited living author and ranks in the top ten ever -just behind Shakespeare, Plato and Freud. Chomksy is the guy the N.Y. Times has called "arguably the most important intellectual alive." A mammoth, two-part film, Manufacturing Consent is nevertheless light on its feet, favoring a style that encourages audiences, just as Chomsky himself encourages his listeners to pry themselves away from the media’s "web of deceit" by undertaking a course of what he calls "intellectual self-defense." Ralph Nader said of Manufacturing Consent, "WATCH OUT FOR THIS FILM... IT CAN MAKE YOU THINK!"
