Inspired by the book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt presents audiences with a satirically comedic, yet illuminating look into the heart of American spin.  Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued punditsfor-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities, yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.  Robert Kenner has won an array of awards for his films: Food, Inc. was nominated for an Academy Award and won two Emmys and Two Days in October, an examination of two key events during the Vietnam conflict and how they shaped Americans’ views of the war, received Peabody, Emmy and Grierson Awards. Kenner was also a co-filmmaker with Richard Pearce on The Road to Memphis for Martin Scorsese’s series “The Blues.”
