M - E - G - A

Media Empires and Grassroots Alternatives, a program of short
documentaries and experimental videos. Who owns the media? How do
corporations use the media to sell privatization as the best of all
possible worlds? What’s the relation between propaganda and political
power? What would a truly “free” media mean?  What’s the relevance of the
free/open source movement?  Pundits, guerrilla broadcasters, and street
televisions present their take on the problem of media concentration … and
what you can do about it.
