Propaganda: The Art of Selling Lies asks the question: why are we so easily seduced by propaganda? The documentary traces the history of the art of persuasion from the remote past up to our present when we are bombarded by more propaganda than ever before.
In this moment of post truth, disinformation and dangerous lies, this film is a cautionary tale and a call to action at a precarious moment in our history. It opens on Friday, July 19th at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.
The man who made this fascinating new documentary, Director Larry Weinstein joined Mark Wigmore on The Oasis.
