Funny, provocative and surprisingly accessible, MANUFACTURING CONSENT explores the political life and ideas of Noam Chomsky, world-renowned linguist, political activist and one of the great minds of our time. In a dynamic collage of new and original footage, biography, archival gems, imaginative graphics and outrageous illustrations, the film highlights Chomsky's probing analysis of mass media. A mammoth, two-part project, MANUFACTURING CONSENT is nonetheless light on its feet, favoring a style that encourages viewers to question its own workings, as Chomsky himself encourages his listeners to extricate themselves from the "web of deceit" by undertaking a course in "intellectual self-defense."

Appearing in the film are major journalists and critics, including Bill Moyers, William F. Buckley, Jr., Tom Wolfe, Peter Jennings, philosopher Michel Foucault, Nightline producer Jeff Greenfield, White House reporter Sarah McClendon, New York Times editorial writer Karl E. Meyer and revisionist author Robert Faurisson.

"An invigorating introduction to one of the least soporific of American minds."
- The New York Times

"Eye-opening, mind-expanding entertainment at its finest.A major achievement."
- Hollywood Reporter

"WATCH OUT FOR THIS FILM... IT CAN MAKE YOU THINK!"
- Ralph Nader

"MEMORABLE...INVALUABLE"
-The Nation

"An immensely accomplished, entertaining examination of the man and his ideas"
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
