“IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST”
is a feature-length documentary film currently in production.
This film tells the story of radio broadcasting in America, giving the public airwaves to private companies for profit in exchange for serving “the public interest” with their stations, and tracing the long battle to control the airwaves well into the 21st century. “In The Public Interest” takes a long-overdue look at why this phrase was inserted into the law and what it means today.
“The airwaves belong to the people… but which people?”
