If you missed Tuesday night’s livestream of our panel Silver Screen War Machine: Decoding the Military-Entertainment Complex, you can watch it below!

This special event, which we co-sponsored with Project Censored, brought together leading experts on U.S. militarism and propaganda to discuss the acclaimed new documentary Theaters of War: How the Pentagon & CIA Took Hollywood and its relevance to the information wars being waged on behalf of U.S. foreign policy in Gaza, Ukraine, China, and beyond.

Panelists include award-winning Palestinian-American journalist MNAR ADLEY, the founder, director, and editor-in-chief of MintPress News, and president and director of the nonprofit media organization Behind the Headlines; award-winning media scholar ROBIN ANDERSON, a leading expert on “militainment” culture and Professor Emerita of Media Studies at Fordham University; FATOOMA SAAD, a Defense Information School-trained U.S. military veteran with experience in military communication and public affairs strategy and a doctoral student in communication at Wayne State University; and filmmaker and media scholar ROGER STAHL, director, editor, and narrator of Theaters of War, Professor of Communication at the University of Georgia, and author of several influential books and articles on the nexus of military propaganda and U.S. entertainment culture. The panel is moderated by journalism professor and author MICKEY HUFF, director of Project Censored and president of the nonprofit Media Freedom Foundation.

Theaters of War is also streaming through universities and public libraries on Kanopy, and is available in other digital formats and DVD.
