Deflatin the Elephant: Framed Messages BehindDVD
Author (and cognitive linguistics professor) George Lakoff offers a crash course on "framing" political debate between liberal and conservative thinkers in this provocative documentary. As hot-button issues are identified with terms that elicit support (or condemnation) from the left and the right, Lakoff tries to provide assistance to progressives hoping to sharpen their rhetorical ideas. Features Sean Penn. Soundtrack: English.
