This Friday Bloor Hot Docs will begin its run of Merchants of Doubt, a new documentary from the makers of Food Inc. We have several run of engagement passes to give away courtesy of Mongrel Media!
Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.
To enter the contest, simply email your name to firstname.lastname@example.org with MERCHANTS OF DOUBT in the subject line . Please only one email entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from out Twitter. Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday, March 15th.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest movie news, reviews, interviews, features, and more great contests! Meanwhile, take a look at some awesome action in the film’s trailer.
