Tue, 06/16/2020 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Join WXXI for Virtual Screening of a documentary that tells how television has shaped us and the world of today. What do we learn about truth seeking in an Age of Misinformation and Oversaturation?

Marion Stokes was dedicated to furthering and protecting the truth — so much so that she recorded American television 24 hours a day for over 30 years. In total, Marion recorded on 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, and catastrophes that tell us who we were and how television has shaped the world of today.

What might we learn from Marion Stokes? How do we further and protect the truth in the age of misinformation?
