A sublimely lensed, rousing cinematic powerhouse telling a whopper of a story about a diverse, charismatic, committed group of Longhorn organizers, activists, and candidates who, rapt with optimism during the 2022 state-wide election campaign and ignoring criticism of what was considered their pie-in-the-sky idealism, campaigned that they could bring about real and lasting progressive change in the Lone Star State.

With tensions running high over a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, all sides have accused each other of spreading misinformation and propaganda.

Moscow has long accused Ukraine of ‘genocide’ against Russian speakers in the east. The United States called the claim ‘a reprehensible falsehood,’ but Washington has also faced criticism for warning of an imminent attack.

So, who will win the battle for public opinion?
Presenter: Mohammed Jamjoom
Lada Roslycky – Founder, Black Trident Defense and Security Consulting Group.
Richard Sakwa – Professor of Russian and European Politics, University of Kent.
Peter Zalmayev – Executive Director, Eurasia Democracy Initiative.
