Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

The Conflict and Culture Research Group presents: Films are not your Friends with Matthew Alford (University of Bath) and Tom Secker (Independent Scholar).

Do you ever wonder if films and TV shows are deliberately trying to make you think a certain way? Is anything "unsayable" on screen? And what happens if you do say it? In this 90-minute multimedia workshop, you can select clips from dozens of films - including the Marvel, James Bond, and Meet the Parents franchises - to discover how they have been secretly manipulated behind the scenes by powerful organisations like the Pentagon, White House, and CIA.

The presenters, Tom Secker and Matthew Alford, have had exclusive access to government files via the Freedom of Information Act, which indicates that the scholarly community has underestimated the scale, range and depth of this state-corporate propaganda nexus. The findings will be of interest to all those engaged with cinema, media, and US politics.

Includes Q&A and opportunities for debate.
