Truth and Power is a documentary series that tells the stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to uncover abuses of power by the government and private institutions. With a commitment to investigative journalism, the series addresses the important issues in greater depth than traditional mainstream media. The subjects, who range from an ex-con turned whistleblower to a Harvard egghead turned politico, are varied, but their compelling David vs. Goliath narratives all turn on the same question: how can Americans preserve civil liberties in the modern age? Intimate interviews, original footage and innovative graphics unravel answers to that complex question. Executive producer, award-winning filmmaker Brian Knappenberger (The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz), brings muckraking journalism to the digital age in this new groundbreaking series. He and the team behind Truth and Power ask experts tough questions and unearth primary documents to put headlines and new information into crucial context.
