Independent Media In A Time Of War

Part scathing critique, part call to action, Independent Media In A Time Of War is a hard-hitting new documentary by the Hudson Mohawk Independent Media Center. This film is composed of a speech given by Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now! illustrated by clips of mainstream media juxtaposed with rare footage from independent reporters in Iraq. The documentary argues that dialogue is vital to a healthy democracy.

Independent media has a crucial responsibility to go to where the silence is, says Amy Goodman, to represent the diverse voices of people engaged in dissent. She makes a compelling argument that the commercial news media have failed to represent the true face of war.
