Love Hate & Propaganda: The War On Terror, 90.00, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Silver Chris Award Winner (Best of Division)
Propaganda, the weapon of mass persuasion, is a powerful force and has helped shape events of the 20th century. This film examines how propaganda influenced significant moments in history, and the lives of the people who lived through them.
Hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos, Love, Hate & Propaganda is a primer on the art of mass persuasion, aimed directly at a media-savvy generation. Nine days after the 9-11 attacks on America, President George Bush declared War on Terror. This film examines the role propaganda played leading up to Bush’s declaration and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Admission is free, donations encouraged.
This screening has been made possible with support from the Ohio Arts Council and the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
