Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media
  • Year1992
  • Duration167 min

Funny, provocative and surprisingly accessible, Manufacturing Consent explores the political life and ideas of world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist Noam Chomsky. Through a dynamic collage of original filming, archival gems, imaginative illustrations, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick's award-winning documentary highlights Chomsky's probing analysis of mass media and his critique of the forces at work behind the daily news. Manufacturing Consent accompanies Chomsky on a global speaking tour, and features appearances by journalist Bill Moyers, pundit William F. Buckley Jr., novelist Tom Wolfe, philosopher Michel Foucault, politician Frederik "Frits" Bolkestein, and holocaust denier Robert Faurisson.
