Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films. Project Censored

Many documentary films give us important information about what is wrong with our society, but they often fail to offer a solution. 'Project Censored: The Movie' explores and publicizes censorship in our society by exposing important stories that the public should be aware of, but is not. Project censored is a media watchdog group and is the solution to Corporate Media's failure to give the American public real news and information.College students can enroll in a Project Censored course and from there learn to become citizen journalists and uncover the real news that our society needs to become an informed electorate. Since the class was founded, the project has grown to include over 25 colleges and universities across the world that offer a Project Censored course. It was the filmmakers' inspiration, as two fathers from California, to take Project Censored on the road and create a documentary film that explores why corporate media fails to report the truth. They spent the past six years of their lives creating this incredibly inspiring film, which reaches all audiences. Corporate media critics like Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast, John Perkins, Cynthia McKinney and a host of others are featured in the film. The result is a beautiful film created by two regular family men who decided it was time to take action against the corporate media giants that have failed the American people in their role as reporting the news. It's time for the people of America to take back the airwaves!

" Project Censored: The Movie, may be the most important film I’ve seen in terms of inspiring media consumers to seek outlets that speak the truth."
