Free Screening!

As part of Canada on Screen, The Cinematheque presents a free screening of Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chompsky and the Media (1992), Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick’s dynamic exploration of the life and thought of the controversial American author, linguist, political dissident, and critic of the press.

This documentary was an early primer on the manufacture of fake news and, using an entertaining blend of archival footage and graphic illustrations, it examines Chomsky’s provocative critique of mainstream media as an instrument of ideological persuasion.

This unlikeliest of hit films — the highest-grossing Canadian documentary to that time — is throughout a compelling, thought-provoking, and sobering call to what Chomsky terms “intellectual self-defence.”

— Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chompsky and the Media is presented as part of Canada on Screen, a year-long program celebrating Canada's 150th birthday and its rich cinematic heritage. Co-produced by TIFF, The Cinematheque, Library and Archives Canada, and the Cinémathèque québécoise. Presented by the Government of Canada, the Royal Bank of Canada, and the Government of Ontario, with support from Telefilm Canada. Screenings are free of charge.
