Movie: War Made Easy

FREE FILM


WAR MADE EASY; How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death
Narrated by Sean Penn


Thursday, May 3rd at 7 pm
Peterborough Unitarian Universalist Church
Parish Hall

War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq.

Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations.

Norman Solomon’s work has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as “brutally persuasive” and essential “for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee.” This film now offers a chance to see that context on the screen.
