A Must for Critical Media Literacy
In the 1980s i was one of an army of volunteers who worked with Peter Watkins on his 14+ hour-long film The Journey which was a stunning examination of both mass media and the nuclear arms industry. I continue to look at the media world through that experience which gave me eyes and ears to see and hear the messages between the lines, in the cracks, underneath the static. Though I haven't actively applied that knowledge to my endless hours of virtual surfing.
