Daniel Bernard, the new executive director of the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, will be in Kelowna next Tuesday for the screening of a documentary.
Digital Disconnect, narrated by Robert McChesney, considered one of the foremost academic voices in media studies, tracks the development of the digital world from its birth in the 1960s to its current status as a fully commercialized and huge influence on our society.
The film shines a light on the destructive aspects of the digital world, then offers suggestions to get past the fake news, filters and privacy breaches that have compromised our democratic ideals, according to a description of the film.
The evening at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 421 Cawston Ave., will begin with a meet-and-greet with Bernard at 6:30 p.m. A cash bar will be available. The documentary begins at 7 p.m.
Friends of Canadian Broadcasting advocates for the CBC and Canadian journalism.
