Influence or “Freedom is Never Free” ft. Directors Richard Poplak and Diana Neille

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Premiering at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, “Influence” takes us into the world of marketing and manipulation within our most foundational public institutions. It’s grounded in the story of Lord TImothy Bell, the firm Bell Pottinger and a politically-charged South Africa, but the questions posed and the realities revealed should be important to all of us.

A great conversation about deep journalism, following the money and media literacy.
