We are more impacted by propaganda today than during Nazi Germany! Preposterous idea? Perhaps. But look at the history of film, the corporate media, commercialization and our current political polarization, and you may begin to agree. For a little over two hours, we will take a look at these ideas thru short film clips and lecture notes to get the audience to think and voice their thoughts and opinions about where we are today in the world of ‘information and truth.’ What is the lens through which you view what is happening today and in your life time? Come and enjoy an afternoon of thoughtful inquiry into the bubble in which we all live.
