Shut Him Down: The Rise of Jordan Peterson

Screening Time

Friday, 24 May 2019 at 1:05 PM – BMO Sports Lounge

Synopsis

Lauded as the most influential thinker of the Western world, psychology professor Jordan Peterson has become a polarizing paradox. After sparking both outrage and support for his stand against Canadian human rights legislation in late 2016, Peterson quickly transformed into a famous public intellectual and internationally best-selling author. SHUT HIM DOWN offers an intimate look into the controversy that started over alternate gender pronouns and left us with two stories about Peterson: Is he a heroic cultural warrior who pushes boundaries and transforms people’s lives for the better? Or is he a bigoted peddler of regressive ideas that cause harm?
