4.8 ·

John Pilger says journalism is meant to be about truth. In this video he reviews his career over more than 50 years as a campaigning journalist, filmmaker and author. Journalism, he says, has a part to play on behalf of humanity. But too many journalists and journalistic institutions see themselves as expressing the ambitions and designs of power, of the people at the top, instead of expressing the humanity of all people.

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.
