Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (DVD)
Directed by Peter Wintonick and Mark Achbar
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 biography, archival gems, imaginative graphics and outrageous 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. Available for the first time anywhere on DVD, Manufacturing Consent features appearances by journalists Bill Moyers and Peter Jennings, pundit William F. Buckley Jr., novelist Tom Wolfe and philosopher Michel Foucault.
DVD Extras Include:
- Noam Chomsky reflects on the film
- Extended excerpts from the 1969 Firing Line debate with William F. Buckley Jr.
- Never-before-seen 1971 discussion with Michel Foucault
- Filmmaker bios and production notes
