Move to Amend has teamed up with producers at Bullfrog Films, Hello Cool World, and DocFactory to create the collaborative film project, Shadows of Democracy -- a film "mash-up" that includes segments from the documentaries The Corporation, Shadows of Liberty, and Move to Amend's Legalize Democracy.
In partnership with the independent, national news network Free Speech TV, we will be airing Shadows of Democracy on Free Speech TV several times in the month of June!
Help spread the word about the nature of corporate rule and the movement for democracy by organizing your own houseparty showing! Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to watch the absurdity of corporate personhood and money as protected political speech.
The Corporation explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time, providing insightful and compelling analysis that takes the corporation's status as a legal "person" to the logical conclusion to ask: what kind of person is it?
Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots, tracing the story of media manipulation through the years to pose a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news?
Legalize Democracy is a short documentary about Move to Amend, the national grassroots campaign to amend the US Constitution to unequivocally state that corporations are not people and money is not speech. This documentary details a history of Supreme Court decisions that gave corporations constitutionally protected rights and established that money is free speech.
SHADOWS OF DEMOCRACY takes the best of each of these three films into a short one-hour documentary that really packs a punch! Organize a screening with your friends, choose any of the times below, and email us (info [at] movetoamend.org) to let us know you're organizing a showing...
