Event Details

The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion
Series will present “Neoconservatism Rebranded,” a 73-minute episode from the
documentary film series, “A Very Heavy Agenda,” Thursday, February 14, 7 to 9
p.m., at the Ashland Library, Community Room, 66 Front St. The event is free
and open to the public.

In “Neoconservatism Rebranded,”
filmmaker Robbie Martin allows leading neoconservatives to explain their world
view and set forth their demands for U.S. military intervention in Iraq,
Ukraine and Syria. Interspersed between interviews with leading
neoconservatives are snippets from a Bill Moyers interview with neoconservative
critic Andrew Bacevich. The episode shows the neoconservative influence in both
the Bush and Obama administrations. The film content gives rise to questions
about the linkage between neoconservatism and neoliberalism and about the class
interests served by neoconservative wars.
