The Souhegan Sustainability Fair and the Wilton Town Hall Theatre will feature “Merchants of Doubt” as the November Sunday documentary film on Nov. 3 at 4:30 p.m.

Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, “Merchants of Doubt” takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities, yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.

A Q & A will follow with members of Citizens Climate Lobby. Admission is free; donations gratefully accepted.
