“Merchants of Doubt” comes to the Firehouse

Merchants of Doubt movie posterRe-scheduled. TIckets for original date will be honored. The FRS Climate Action Project and Transitions Newburyport are co-sponsoring the film “Merchants of Doubt” at the Firehouse Center for the Arts on Sunday, February 26 at 3pm.

Inspired by the acclaimed book, “Merchants of Doubt” takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin.

“You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” said Abraham Lincoln. This film lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities - yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.
Tickets are $10 at Firehouse Ticket Office or www.firehouse.org. Duration: 98 minutes.
