We're proud to announce the release of Dr. Roger Stahl's documentary film Theaters of War: How the Pentagon and CIA Took Hollywood (2022) with the Media Education Foundation. It is currently streaming on Kanopy and retail demand. The film - and forthcoming book - track the operations of government PR offices that have influenced the scripts of thousands of films and television shows. These systematic patterns of script influence are spelled out in the over 30,000 pages of internal documents unearthed by the research team in the last five years. For a thorough description, trailer, and links to stream the film, visit: http://www.theatersofwarmovie.com

Theaters of War has received a wave of international media attention in recent months, fueled in part by the release of Top Gun: Maverick and a corresponding op-ed Dr. Stahl penned for the LA Timeshttps://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2022-05-30/top-gun-maverick-memorial-day-tom-cruise-pentagon-propaganda

We congratulate Dr. Stahl on a successful release and look forward to the book!
