520    Reflections On Media Ethics is a 25 minute documentary 
       addressing the topic of morals, ethics and values, with an
       emphasis on the media industry. While the topic of 
       "ethics" dates back to the days of Aristotle, "media 
       ethics" and issues such as: representation of underserved 
       and vulnerable populations, privacy, and censorship, the 
       observer vs. the observed, stereotypes, public interest, 
       manipulation, and truth are of great relevance at this 
       time. Through in-depth interviews and discussions with 
       leading thinkers, scholars and documentarians of our time,
       Reflections On Media Ethics examines many of these 
       important issues. Interviews and discussions with 
       Professor Noam Chomsky, at M.I.T., Baroness Mary Warnock, 
       Amy Goodman, and renowned documentary pioneers Albert 
       Maysles, George Stoney and Jon Alpert illuminate important
       considerations for the film and television industry, 
       academic curriculum development, and the general viewing 
       public. These conversations highlight the conflict between
       moral absolutism and moral relativism as it applies to 
       topic selection, and issues of representation. Moral 
       absolutism is the belief that there are absolute standards
       against which moral behaviors can be judged, and that 
       certain actions are right or wrong, devoid of the context 
       of the act. Modern "human rights theory" subscribes to 
       this view. Absolutism is often philosophically contrasted 
       with moral relativism, which is a belief that moral truths
       are relative to social, cultural, or historical references,
       and to the situation or context of the act. The creation 
       of media and media usage may be subject to pressures to 
       maximize: economic profits, entertainment value, 
       information provision, the upholding of democratic 
       freedoms, the development of art and culture, fame and 
       vanity. How do producers, directors and journalists 
       reconcile these, at times, conflicting goals? In addition 
       to discussions with leading scholars and thinkers of our 
       time, Reflections On Media Ethics will provide viewers 
       with a balanced understanding of the issues faced by those
       in the media industry trying to cope with on-going 
       economic pressures. Reflections On Media Ethics is a 
       timely and important documentary exploring the values of 
       right and wrong, good and evil and responsibility as it 
       pertains to the creation of media and the media industry. 
       This topic needs to be addressed in this day and age of 
       global crisis, misunderstanding, religious fundamentalism,
       and issues of development. Can we move towards setting up 
       a global system of ethics and ethical standards? How can 
       we begin to set up a global code of ethics taking into 
       account post colonial power relationships?
