TITLES IN BOLD

A Crude Awakening
Synopsis: (2001) A documentary written, produced, and directed by Nashville, Tennessee-based filmmaker and investigative journalist Bart Winfield Sibrel, a noted critic of the United States space program and proponent of the theory that the six Apollo lunar landing missions between 1969 and 1972 were hoaxes perpetrated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Sibrel believes that there were numerous insurmountable scientific and technical problems involving landing men on the moon and returning them to Earth safely, and that certain anomalies and inconsistencies in NASA's records of the landings point to a hoax.

The 47-minute documentary primarily focuses on the Van Allen belts, areas of intense radiation circling the Earth, as a major reason why it was impossible for a manned spacecraft to land on the moon. Sibrel also presents footage of what he claims is official NASA footage that was not meant for release to the public showing the crew of Apollo 11 (Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin) staging a view of a false Earth from the command capsule

Sibrel postulates that the fraud was perpetrated because of the perception that if the United States could put a man on the moon before the Soviet Union did, it would be a major victory in the Cold War, since the Soviet government had been the first to achieve a successful space launch (Sputnik in 1957,) the first manned space flight, and the first spacewalk.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon also examines the famous moon photographs and points out such anomalies as non-parallel shadows to prove that multiple artificial lighting sources were used, and sped-up video footage of the astronauts walking on the lunar surface and lunar rovers driving on the surface are also used to advance the theory they were actually filmed on Earth and slowed down to simulate the moon's lower gravity.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon was narrated by a British stage actress named Anne Tonelson. Bart Sibrel himself makes no appearance in the film. Interestingly, however, he does appear prominently in the controversial Fox Television Network special, Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? The two documentaries share some footage.

Beyond Treason
Synopsis: The U. S. Government’s long history of conducting deadly military experiments and the documents that prove it! What you don't know about your government could kill you - "I found Beyond Treason compelling, disturbing and enlightening - all at the same time" Jon Elliott, KLSD Radio. Department of Defense documents retrieved through the Freedom of Information Act expose a two decade long cover-up that is just now coming to light. Since 1991 our government has denied the existence of a Gulf War Illness. Only recently have they begun to admit what our troops have known for over 20 years. Hear what Gulf War veterans and medical experts have to say about Chemical & Biological Exposures, Radioactive Poisoning , Experimental Vaccines, (DU) Depleted Uranium Contamination, and why the U.S. Veteran's Administration is ignoring our men and women in uniform. A must see for all. Includes an extra CD-Rom with thousands of pages of F.O.I.A. documentation obtained from the Department of Defense, which help guide the findings and arguments made in the film. Grand Festival Award Winner - 2005 Berkeley Film Fest. Co-Produced by Joyce Riley | Produced, Directed, Edited by William Lewis; Soundtrack Score: William Lewis.
This documentary presents comprehensive and compelling documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up lasting over two generations.What cause Gulf War Illnesses? Some believe these illnesses are caused by exposure to depleted uranium munitions used on the battlefield. Others believe chemical and biological exposures are the prime suspect. While yet an even larger group argue that experimental vaccines given to our troops, without their knowledge or consent, may have lead to the demise of many of these solders.

Is it a combination of overlapping exposures? A growing number of scientists and respected experts in their fields have been coming forward to share their research and first-hand knowledge of official betrayal.

As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of “unknown causes,” they wait for answers from their respective governments . . . but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U. S. Department of Defense and their “disposable army” mentality.

The VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a “mystery disease.” How many more will have to die before action is taken?Billion Dollar Crop

Bullitt

Synopsis: (1968) There are bad cops and there are good cops -- and then there is BullittDetective Frank Bullit’s new assignment seems routine: protecting a star witness for an important trial. But before the night is out, the witness lies dying and the cool, no-nonsense Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won’t rest until the shooters -- and the kingpin pulling their string -- are nailed. From opening shot to closing shootout, Bullitt crackles with authenticity: on-location San Francisco filming, crisp dialogue and to-the-letter police, hospital and morgue procedures. An Oscar winner for Best Film Editing (1968), this razor-edged thriller features one of cinema history’s most memorable car chases. Buckle up . . . and brace for unbeatable action.
Buried in the Sand
Bush’s Brian
Bush Family Fortunes

Synopsis: (2003) It is certainly fitting that Michael Moore is quoted in the publicity for this film, hailing it as "courageous reporting." After all, it is the BBC's Greg Palast on whom Fahrenheit 9/11 relies for several of its key points -- the purging of Black voters from the Florida voter rolls in 2000, the connecting link of Saudi money to George W. Bush's failed oil ventures, and so on. Within the chainsaw-wielding Texas rancher, the blue blood of Connecticut runs deep. But not so many people know that there are a couple of rocks to be turned over in the Bush family history.

It is one of the failings of American media that Palast, an American citizen, must report for other countries' media. Though widely regarded as one of the finest investigative journalists working today for his work with the Guardian and BBC's Newsnight, Palast's reporting is effectively blacked out in the mainstream U.S. media. The only access for U.S. audiences is his recently republished and updated book (The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, Penguin, 2004), and this documentary just released to DVD, Bush Family Fortunes.

Greg Palast studied at the University of Chicago under neo-liberal godfather and free market apologist Milton Friedman and worked as a racketeering investigator before beginning his career in journalism. Will Rogers once said, "We have the best Congress money can buy," a lesson Palast obviously took to heart. When all else fails, the best way to get to the bottom of a story is to "follow the money." Take, for example, Texas politico Ben Barnes, about whom Palast broke the story in 1999 of Barnes putting in the fix to get Bush into the Air Guard and out of Viet Nam. It seems there is evidence that Barnes received "in excess of $23 million in lobbying fees for a client given a very suspicious no-bid contract by the Bush administration."

While at times, Palast's on-screen fedora doffing gumshoe persona can be a bit much to take, his reporting itself is first rate (as evidenced by the numerous awards for which he has been nominated and/or received). As an uncompromising investigator, Greg Palast is to British television viewers what Mike Wallace is here in the U.S., with one significant difference: Palast's reporting is kept from viewers in his own country -- the people who need to hear it the most.

Greg Palast is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy and Joker's Wild: George Bush's House of Cards regime change deck.

Case for Free Electricity
Conspiracy: The Secret History - In Search of the American Drug Lords, Barry and the Boys From Dallas
Synopsis: Discover the truth behind the cocaine craze that swept the nation in the 1980s as legendary CIA agent and notorious drug smuggler Barry Seal is profiled in a documentary exploring just how some of the biggest scandals and assassinations of the 1960s and '70s could have been perpetrated by the same people who started a drug epidemic of epic proportions. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Crash Course
David Icke - 2008 Presentation at Oxford University

Synopsis: In this two-hour presentation at the famous Oxford Union at Oxford University, David Icke encapsulates humanity's current plight and how we can secure our freedom from the Hidden Hand behind global events. It is designed to be a simple introduction to the staggering revelations that he has long exposed in detail in his books. If you want to know what is really happening in your world, and why, this is not to be missed. Your freedom and that of your children and grandchildren could well depend upon it. Particularly recommended for people new to this information or to show friends and family to introduce them to the bigger picture. (David was speaking to highly intelligent Oxford students, so he had to keep it real simple.)
Deliver Us From Evil
Synopsis: A devastating investigation into the pedophilia scandals tearing apart the Catholic Church, Deliver Us From Evil begins by looking into one priest, Father Oliver O'Grady, who agreed to be interviewed by journalist/filmmaker Amy Berg. O'Grady's genial calm is at first ingratiating, until he begins to describe his crimes with an unsettling sociopathic detachment. But O'Grady's blithe interview is only half of the story, as the documentary also unveils how church superiors covered up O'Grady's crimes and shuffled him from diocese to diocese in northern California, finally placing him in an unsupervised position of authority in a small town, where he sexually assaulted dozens of children; the video deposition of Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahoney is a grotesque portrait in brittle denial. What makes Deliver Us From Evil crucial viewing, however, are the remarkable interviews with a few of the victims (now adults) and their parents, whose stories are wrenching and riveting. With the support of a priest seeking to reform the church, two of the victims actually go to the Pope, seeking some form of help in addressing O'Grady's crimes. This stunningly potent documentary combines raw feeling with lucid and persuasive discussions of the reasons for--and disturbing breadth of--this crisis within the Church. --Bret Fetzer
Desperado
Synopsis: (1995) El Mariachi left off with this slam-bang South of the Border action saga. Bucho (Joaquim DeAlmeida) is a wealthy but casually bloodthirsty drug kingpin who rules a seedy Mexican border town. Bucho and his men make the mistake of angering El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas), a former musician who now carries an arsenal in his guitar case. Bucho was responsible for the death of El Mariachi's girlfriend and put a bullet through his fretting hand, making him unable to play the guitar. Bent on revenge, the musician-turned-killing machine arrives in town to put Bucho out of business, though he finds few allies except for Carolina (Salma Hayek), who runs a bookstore that doesn't seem to attract many readers. Desperado features supporting performances from Cheech Marin as a cynical bartender, Steve Buscemi as the cantina patron who sets up the story, and Quentin Tarantino as a man with a really terrible joke to tell. ~ Mark Deming.. Starring: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Joaquim de Almeida, Cheech Marin, more cast; Directed By: Robert Rodriguez.
Dirty Harry
Synopsis: (1971) “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” -- San Francisco police detective Harry Callahan In this signature role, Clint Eastwood plays a streetwise San Francisco police detective who gets the job done. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) named Scorpio has killed twice. Harry Callahan will nail the perp . . . one way or the other ... no matter what “the system” prescribes. Filming on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of one of the best police thrillers ever made.
Dollars & Sense
Dollars and Sense by John McManus provides an excellent tool for teaching Americans about the nature of money and inflation, and how to solve the problem. A must see given the current economic crisis!
Easy Rider
Synopsis: (1969) Experience the real, uncensored ‘60s counterculture in this compelling mixture of drugs, sex and armchair politics. Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson (Best Actor, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, 1975; Best Support Actor, Terms of Endearment, 1983; Best Actor, As Good As It Gets, 1997) stars with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper (who also directs) in this unconventional classic which Time magazine hails as “one of the ten most important pictures of the decade.” Nominated for an Academy Award (1969) for Best Screenplay (written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern), Easy Rider continues to touch a chord with audiences of all ages.
Electra Glide in Blue
Synopsis: (1973) Robert Blake “displays a superabundance of magnetism and machismo” (Cue) as a good cop on the ultimate bad bike in this “powerful” (Boxoffice) film feating “striking action sequences” (Leonard Maltin) and a “bravura rock score” (Los Angeles Times). Set against the breathtaking visuals of Monument Valley, this mesmerizing film is your ticket to open-road excitement!

The only thing good-hearted motorcycle cop John Wintergreen (Blake) wants is to become a detective -- to wear a big Stetson, smoke fancy cigars and be paid to think. So when he stumbles upon a dead body, he takes on the case ... and proves his stuff! But as soon as he’s promoted, the corruption he must tolerate makes the Stetson not fit so well and the cigars not taste so good. Forced to confront his own disillusionment, Wintergreen heads out on his bike, the Electra Glide, where he makes another shocking discovery -- one that could cost him his life!

FTA

Synopsis: Why did FTA disappear 37 years ago? To put it another way, why did a film featuring Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland at the height of their careers, less than a year after their hugely popular film Klute (for which Jane won the Academy Award for Best Actress), suddenly get yanked from theaters after only one week?

The answer lies in the film itself, and the turmoil it revealed. 1972 was no ordinary year. It was the year of Watergate. It was the year of Nixon's horrific, relentless bombing campaign against the people of North Vietnam. And it was the year that the rebellion of soldiers and marines against the Vietnam War spread to the Navy and Air Force. FTA is the film that reveals and revels in that rebellion in a way that no other film did then or had for 35 years, until I made Sir! No Sir!

Francine Parker, who directed FTA, swore to me a couple of years ago that Sam Arkoff, the enigmatic head of American International Pictures, which was distributing the film, told her he had received a threatening phone call from the White House - and that is why he pulled the film. Is the story true? There's no proof, but I can't think of another reasonable explanation for Sam Arkoff, a man who knew how to wring every penny out of a film, yanking one starring Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland from theaters at a big loss (and, apparently, destroying all of the prints, since none were ever found). And what happened after that certainly gives credence to the story.

With the yanking of FTA, the story of the GI Movement against the Vietnam War was also yanked from public view, and has since been deeply buried under a swath of myths and lies that poured out of a newly "patriotic" Hollywood in the late seventies and early eighties. Rambo was just the tip of the iceberg, as the memory of an illegal, immoral, and hideously deadly war was replaced by Ronald Reagan's declaration that "The antiwar movement betrayed our troops."

I brought back FTA because I want you to see and feel the truth. Sadly, Francine Parker died a year ago, before she could see her film finally get its due. But the film is here. Watch it, and let yourself feel the electricity of that time. More importantly, ask yourself what it is about "then" that feels like "now," that speaks directly to us today. When you listen to Donald Sutherland give his mesmerizing rendition of the soliloquy from Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun, look around you and ask yourself if anything has really changed.

And while you're doing that, enjoy the film. It's a lot of fun. David Zeiger

Life & Debt
Life on the Edge of a Bubble

Synopsis: Life On The Edge of A Bubble - Bribes, Campaign Contributions, & The American Dream On Display. “Exposes the “con” in the confidence game.” Carol Brouillet - Political Writer. Bursting the Myth, Revealing the History of Power - Life on the Edge of a Bubble is a fast paced kaleidoscopic look at the bubbles, panics, and depressions that have reoccurred almost like clockwork every twenty years since the United States government joined forces with the banking interests, back in the 1700’s. Using vintage footage, slick TV ads, revelatory statements made by politicians and Federal Reserve chairmen, in the course of the most recent bailouts, the film is paced like a roller coaster, punctuated by thoughtful statements and the dramatic chronicling of past human follies... Exposing the “con” in the confidence game, how profits are privatized and losses socialized, how the rule makers bend and break the rules to enrich themselves and their financial backers, the film skillfully identifies key aspects of the systemic nature of the problem, a first step in the awesome task breaking that pattern. Reviewed by Carol Brouillet. Co-Written, Produced, & Directed by William Lewis; Co-Written & Produced by Michael Berger; Narrated by David Trabucco. (TakeBackWashington.com)
