Salon duc Tape – “Trustworthy”  – Friday, June 14th

**********

How can the division fostered by U.S. media be overcome?

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 14th for an in-person viewing of “Trustworthy,” a documentary that chronicles a 5,300-mile journey across America to explore how the growing crisis of trust in media threatens our democracy, and whether we can find common ground.  Stephany Zamora, the Executive Producer, will be on hand to discuss the film afterward.  This final salon before our summer break will be held at the FoCo Café, our usual meeting place before the pandemic struck in 2020.

On January 6th, 2021, Stephany sat transfixed as she watched events unfolding in real time at the United States Capitol. Troubled by how misinformation has fueled the country’s growing polarization, she woke up the next morning committed to do something. She decided to produce a documentary that explores our media, trust, democracy and whether we can find common ground. In October of that year, Stephany and a crew of nine people she’d never met in person before climbed aboard a 40-foot tour bus named Bandit, and pulled out of a rather bleak parking lot near Los Angeles International Airport. They traversed craggy deserts in Arizona, peered over the border wall in Texas, and barreled through bomb cyclones and electrical storms in the South and East.  During the 23-day trek across America, the crew found folks on the street were eager to share their thoughts about the current state of our media. A common theme began to emerge, regardless of political ideology — that people were not only frustrated, but deeply saddened by the divide that has crept into our communities and personal relationships. They longed for a way to reconnect, and to begin healing our fractured democracy.  This documentary is a must-see for everyone who seeks to better understand our media and help bridge the political divide.

Stephany Zamora is a California native raised in Silicon Valley, a veteran tech executive who specializes in business systems and operations for growing startup industries. In 2015, she moved to Southern California and continues to consult for various technology companies. Stephany’s film career began as a call to action after January 6th.
