Thursday 10:00 am
An individual chronicles the state of media and politics in America today. First, by embedding himself for nine months with the media covering the presidential election, then by casting a light on the media habits of the body politic. So begins the journey down the rabbit hole of our broken political information system. Where shiny objects hypnotize, truthiness empowers and paranoia runs rampant. Ultimately, DEMOCRACY THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: MEDIA AND POLITICS IN THE POST-TRUTH ERA is a story about the immense challenges democracy faces in the digital age and the role "we the people" play in renewing long-held values during transformative times. While a cautionary tale about technology, the film is an example of how the tools of the digital age can empower the individual in combating groupthink. 
Panel: “Realigning Political Ideologies in the Digital Age” Jim Antle, John Fund, Madeleine Morgenstern; Kevin Bowe, mod.
