Product Description:
The word "lobotomy" in the title of this documentary refers to the brain-washing type way the Russian government manipulated the public and twisted the news media's portrayal of Russian actions during the conflict between Russia, Georgia, and the republics of Ossetia and Abkhazia. Experts often refer to the information war that was waged along with the physical war between the groups, particularly the way Russia demonized the opposition while striving to make Russia seem to be the peace-keeper. To combat Russia's misinformation, the government of Georgia attempted to block Russian newscasts and even Internet access. This documentary not only delves into Russia and Georgia's information war, but the larger implications of propaganda, the control of media, and how governments communicate in times of crisis.
