Park Center for Independent Media presents
All Governments Lie
Thursday, December 7 at 7 pm
FREE Admission
featuring Q & A with the film’s producer, Jeff Cohen

How many movies seen across the globe had key scenes filmed in Ithaca? The new documentary “All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception and the Spirit of I.F. Stone” is co-produced by Jeff Cohen of Ithaca College’s Park Center for Independent Media. Jeff will participate in a Q&A after the screening.

The movie – which has been seen in film festivals and on public TV channels across the globe (but is too controversial for PBS) – celebrates independent journalists who’ve exposed U.S. government deception. Stars include Amy Goodman & Nermeen Shaikh (Democracy Now!), Glenn Greenwald & Jeremy Scahill (The Intercept), Cenk Uygur & Ana Kasparian (The Young Turks), Carl Bernstein (Watergate), Michael Moore, John Carlos Frey and the legendary I.F. (“Izzy”) Stone. The Izzy Award for independent media, presented annually at Ithaca College, is named in
