POWER AND TERROR: NOAM CHOMSKY IN OUR TIMES (2002)

Film details

Synopsis

Documentary. For decades, the world-renowned intellectual Noam Chomsky has been a quiet but steadfast critic of United States foreign policy. Chomsky continues his studies in linguistics as an emeritus professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His linguistic theories have revolutionized the field and won countless academic honours, including Japan's Kyoto Prize. At the same time, since the Vietnam War, he has maintained an active political opposition and published prolific criticism of the exercise and abuse of US power overseas. After September 11, no one has been as pointed and relentless in calling the US to task for its own support and responsibility for countless acts and campaigns of terrorist aggression, both historically and in the present.
