Summary
Beyond Good and Evil argues that U.S. political leaders and news media responded to the 9/11 tragedy by simplifying complex international relationships into a fight between good and evil. The video examines how this "good and evil" narrative shapes our perceptions of, and response to, conflict more generally. Focusing on the impact of such rhetoric and imagery on children, the film asks viewers to consider the long-term consequences of reductive thinking. Co-produced and written by Chyng Sun. Co-produced, directed and edited by Miguel Picker.
