MERCHANTS OF DOUBT
D: Robert Kenner | USA | 2014 | 96 min
Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, MERCHANTS OF DOUBT takes audiences on a satirically illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner (FOOD, INC.) lifts the curtain on the secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who stake claims contrary to scientific consensus. Presenting themselves in the media as experts, they are paid by corporations, think tanks and other special interests to cast doubt and delay governmental action on everything from cigarettes to pharmaceuticals and, most recently, climate change. Kenner examines the birth of the doubt industry, how it has succeeded for decades, and why we need to fight back.
MERCHANTS OF DOUBT
Wednesday, March 4, 7:00 p.m.
Cineplex Odeon Eau Claire Market Cinemas, 200 Barclay Parade Southwest
Doc Soup Calgary is presented by the Calgary International Film Festival, City and Hot Docs.
