This 2-part video series offers a basic explanation of Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky's Propaganda Model. In their 1988 book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, they outline 5 filters that critique “the political economy of the mass media," namely that the mass media give the illusion that they are a neutral and democratic enterprise but, in reality, their primary function is to mobilize support for special interests that dominate government and the private sector.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
