NOBODY SPEAK: Trials of the Free Press

NOBODY SPEAK: Trials of the Free Press sheds a light on wealthy, powerful figures who challenge press freedoms in order to silence critics. By examining Silicon Valley Billionaire Peter Thiel’s secretive funding of the Hulk Hogan court case against Gawker Media, the efforts of journalists at the Las Vegas Review Journal to uncover the secretive purchase of the paper by casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, as well as President Donald Trump’s broad attacks – the film reveals a growing and persistent threat against the First Amendment and press freedoms. When the very wealthy can leverage their power against critical voices, democracy is in danger.

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press debuted in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of unchecked power and influence.
