Peter Wintonick, who passed away in December, is being honoured with a retrospective at the Cinematheque Quebecois. From the Montreal Gazette:
The CinÃ©mathÃ¨que QuÃ©becoise will present four documentaries directed, or co-directed, by Montreal filmmaker Peter Wintonick between Wednesday, Jan. 15, and Friday, Jan. 24, 2014. Wintonick died of liver cancer in November, 2013. It was a big loss for his friends, family and the filmmaking world. In addition to making his own films, he provided guidance and encouragement to many other filmmakers.
The series kicks off Wednesday with Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992), in which Chomsky, a linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist, maintains that government and media are manipulating the way we perceive the world. â€œPropaganda is to democracy what violence is to dictatorship,â€ he says.
