Friday 16th June 2017
“CounterPunch” Documentary (Film) [Available Globally]
Sneak preview of one of next weeks releases:
Brian Knappenberger’s film“Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press” is a 2017 Netflix Original Documentary hot off the Sundance Film Festival’s premiere screenings. The film takes a look at the freedom of the press versus privacy rights particularly looking at the famous trial of Gawker Media whereby famous wrestler Hulk Hogan sued them for their use of a sex tape and he silenced them with the help of billionaire Peter Thiel who later had connections to the Trump administration. Questions are raised regarding the media and how money can influence what they convey to the public. This will surely be a very interesting watch for those interested in or studying journalism and the media in general. The film looks at the dynamics of the media and how it has changed over time including any bias and will no doubt result in featuring as educational material. With that in mind, educational facilities will be happy to hear that Netflix have released a statement on where they stand regarding the use of Netflix Original Documentaries as a learning tool and public screenings in the classroom…
