An account of a broken media system.

Among the suppressed stories discussed in the film are possible governmental connections to drug trafficking and an unresolved aviation accident, working conditions at Nike factories in China and the origin of the war in Iraq.

JEAN-PHILLIPPE TREMBLAY originates form Québec, Canada. He studied film and law and the University of Carleton. After graduating from the London Film School he joined the production company Docfactory. SHADOWS OF LIBERTY is his first feature length film.
