Manufacturing Consent

UN FILM DE Mark Achbar, Peter Wintonick

An immensely accomplished, entertaining examination of the man and his ideas.
The film is politically and intellectually potent, even infuriating, whether you agree with Chomsky or disagree with him.
An invigorating introduction to one of the least soporific of American minds.
- Vincent Canby, NEW YORK TIMES
Watch out for this film. It can make you think.
- Ralph Nader
Superb, densely packed and buoyant.
- Geoff Pevere, CANADIAN FORUM


Funny, provocative and surprisingly accessible, MANUFACTURING CONSENT explores the political life and ideas of Noam Chomsky, world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist. In a dynamic collage of new and original footage, biography, archival gems, imaginative graphics and outrageous illustrations, the film highlights Chomsky's probing analysis of mass media. A mammoth two-part project, MANUFACTURING CONSENT is nonetheless light on its feet, favoring a style that encourages viewers to question its own workings, as Chomsky himself encourages his listeners to extricate themselves from the "web of deceit" by undertaking a course of "intellectual self-defense." The two-disc 15th anniversary edition of this revolutionary film is accompanied by a rich selection of special features.
