Saturday, April 15 • 9:30PM All Governments Lie


Journalist I.F. Stone famously said "All governments lie," and this belief motivates fearless independent journalists to find the truth. Explore pivotal moments in history when investigative journalists uncovered facts that contradicted official government statements. This film follows independent journalism from I. F. Stone, whose fearless, independent reporting from 1953 to 1971 filled a tiny 4-page newsletter which he wrote, published, and carried to the mailbox every week, to today. The film profiles Amy Goodman, Sharif Abdel Kouddous, Nermeen Shaikh, Jeremy Scahill, Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibi, and others as they expose government lies and corporate deception.

Documentary, Directed by Fred Peabody. 90 minutes.
