Description

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus explores the current state of free speech in America and gives viewers a fascinating perspective on the First Amendment throughout our history. Through contemporary case studies dealing with the complex issue of limits on free speech at public gatherings, in school, in print and on the Internet, Shouting Fire: Stories from the Edge of Free Speech examines the balancing act between protecting both civil liberties and national security in a post- 9/11 world and asks the question whether all speech is equally "free." The difficult issues raised in the film are at the heart of what defines America and makes it unique as a republic. Garbus' primary tour guide navigating this perilous landscape is her own father: First Amendment attorney Martin Garbus, who is interviewed at length along with other well-known figures from both the liberal and conservative fronts.
