For more than a century, film and filmmakers have framed the way people perceive life, current events and the world at large. But do filmmakers have a political responsibility, or is their only duty to art? Has film’s power to influence political action been eroded by an era of changing political discourse and media consumption habits? Does Hollywood still have a monopoly in its self-proclaimed role of global conscience?
