WinterFest 2017 at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco presented the ultra-relevant documentary, “All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception and the Spirit of I.F. Stone” directed by Fred Peabody on Sunday, March 5. The film profiles investigative journalists like Amy Goodman, Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, along with progressive thinkers from Noam Chomsky to Michael Moore, in a look at the changing role of investigative journalism in today’s political climate.
After the film, Academy-Award nominated local filmmaker Rick Goldsmith moderated a panel of esteemed Bay Area journalists, David Talbot, founder of the online news site SALON; Rose Aguilar of KALW’s Your Call; and Norman Solomon, founder of the Institute for Public Accuracy, in a discussion of the issues contemporary journalists face.
The 4th annual WinterFest was sponsored by the Jewish Film Institute.
