Liberal. That single word is changeable within the context. It could mean opposite ideas. In North America, it seems leftist. But if you say neoliberal, you are shaking the concept again. Maybe it is not coincidence for these ‘accidental’ similar words being different in a prefix (which calls for ‘new’).
There have been many discussions about mass media and culture products. Some people deplore the ‘strong liberal bias’ from Hollywood to other forms of art. Now suppose that Hollywood has indeed a liberal agenda. How can we believe that the final product embraces equalitarian views while the means of production belongs to a limited set of enterprises? From this perspective, Hollywood would be a perfect reflection of neoliberalism: free market, expanded society, ultra-connected world.
What about indie films? Are those another product of neoliberalism? That totally depends on what indie films are we talking about. Sometimes, the attitude of a film’s members (actors, director, scriptwriters…) tells us more than the film’s message. It doesn’t matter if these people are commenting against injustice in social networks like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter; but you will never see them in a local social movement. Influence derived from fame is relevant for protesting, but that doesn’t quit the fact that these celebrities will rarely be willing to compromise their comfort for standing up for a social issue.
