Synopsis

Reflections On Media Ethics is a 25 minute documentary addressing the topic of morals, ethics and values, with an emphasis on the media industry. While the topic of “ethics” dates back to the days of Aristotle, “media ethics” and issues such as: representation of underserved and vulnerable populations, privacy, and censorship, the observer vs. the observed, stereotypes, public interest, manipulation, and truth are of great relevance at this time.

Through in-depth interviews and discussions with leading thinkers, scholars and documentarians of our time, Reflections On Media Ethics examines many of these important issues. Interviews and discussions with Professor Noam Chomsky, at M.I.T., Baroness Mary Warnock, Amy Goodman, and renowned documentary pioneers Albert Maysles, George Stoney and Jon Alpert illuminate important considerations for the film and television industry, academic curriculum development, and the general viewing public.
