A Filmed Solo Performance
misinformation has become more prevalent than fact.
propaganda, more popular than journalism.
psychographics have taken over social media.
oligarchy has supplanted democracy.
fracking has become more dominant than ever in the USA.
they‘re all connected in more ways than one...
A new film to address our democratic emergency and mobilize people to vote in 2020.
The Truth Has Changed is a groundbreaking feature film, live performance and book created by legendary filmmaker and activist Josh Fox. The Truth Has Changed is a solo monologue which traces the arc of American propaganda and misinformation from 9/11 to Trump from the perspective of the front lines. From his experiences as a first responder during 9/11, to his groundbreaking reporting on fracking, to his eye opening eco-flights over the Gulf of Mexico during the BP oil spill, to Hurricane Sandy to the massive rallies for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election and the Democratic Convention to Standing Rock and beyond, Josh Fox is an eyewitness to history. The Truth Has Changed tells the story of this terrifying progression of American history from a front row seat.
The Oscar-nominated and Emmy-Winning filmmaker behind GASLAND, the film that started the anti-fracking movement worldwide, Josh Fox was the subject of a 100 million dollar smear campaign from the oil and gas industry. But what is even more compelling is that this campaign of misinformation and slander was run by people we have heard quite a bit about in recent times: Steve Bannon, Andrew Breitbart, James O’Keefe and others. And what Steve Bannon and company did to Josh from 2010-2015, he did to the whole American electorate in 2016. Josh Fox was the beta test for the types of propaganda and smear that gang that created Cambridge Analytica is now known for world wide. And Josh is telling his story in an uncompromising way like never before.

Misinformation has now become more prevalent than fact. Propaganda, more popular than journalism. Oligarchy has supplanted democracy. Oil and Gas have become more dominant than ever. Methods of technologies for destroying the basis of truth in our society are stronger and more pervasive than ever. It is an all out assault on truth. A smear campaign against reality itself. And more than ever, each piece of information that you receive is tailored to you exclusively. Your personality and your psychology has been uploaded into the matrix, and the corporation speaks to you through the mirror. It is called psychographics.
Every piece of information that you receive via the internet, media, facebook and google is tailored to you exclusively. Your personality and your psychology has been uploaded into the matrix, and the corporation speaks to you through the mirror.
Facebook and Google and most of the major corporations on earth have amassed so much data on you, that they know more about you than ever before. And they are selling that data to the highest bidders. Advertisers, marketers, politicians, movie moguls, anyone and everyone who can pay. And then their lightning fast algorithms put you in a psychographic category and market you the kind of truth that they want you to believe in a language specifically tailored to who you are and what will persuade you.
WHO IS PUSHING THIS CHANGE?WHO BENEFITS FROM PSYCHO-GRAPHICMANIPULATION OF THE ELECTORATE?
Mike Pompeo to the Koch Brothers, to Vladimir Putin and Rosneft to Trump, Josh Fox’s investigation reveals the deep connections between the psychographic invasion of voter’s privacy, and the continued dominance of oil and gas and fracking in our electorate. Drawing connections like no other reporter, Josh details the precise connectivity between these forces and shows how their new techniquest of manipulation.
AMERICAIS A NATIONOF IMMIGANTS.
This is deeply personal to me, as it is to so many. I am the grandson of immigrants. My grandparents are Holocaust survivors who found refuge in America. America was a place of Asylum. Not anymore. Today, we’re turning away people who are facing violence, famine and dire environmental threats related to Climate Change. Modern day oligarchs and smear merchants like Steve Bannon are demonizing migrants. Migrants like my ancestors. We are witnessing the criminalization of immigration, the criminalization of legitimate asylum seekers.
WE DON'T NEED A HIGHER WALL,WE NEED A LONGER TABLE.
The United Nations estimates we are going to have 200 million to a billion climate refugees moving around the planet to find new homes because of droughts, fires, basic destabilization, lack of food, extreme weather and sea level rise. Our false borders cannot hold. We must imagine a new way. 200 million new migrants to America is a solution. It will make us more generous and more beautiful and it will make us more diverse and extraordinary. They are fighting for the American dream. They are fighting for their own dreams. They are fighting for a better life. That’s what this country is about. That’s what makes America great.
