River: Anti-Colonial struggles of Robert Lovelace


2015, The United States, Canada

Robert (Bob) Lovelace, a respected Queen's professor and an indigenous activist, has struggled against colonialism all his life. Robert was born in Missouri in the US from a white father and an Indian mother.

Robert came to Canada during the time of Vietnam War, as he resisted being inducted into military service. In 2008, Robert spent three and a half months in prison for his part in defending the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation from uranium exploration and mining.

Robert converted to Islam after reading the holy Quran. In a bid to break the Israeli-imposed blockade on the impoverished Gaza Strip, Robert aboard a flotilla of boats set sail for the coastal enclave. Robert Lovelace sees a parallel between the settler-colonial occupation of land in Canada and in Gaza and refers to Gaza as "The world's largest Indian reservation."

Een documentaire door Bram Kastelijns.
Onze tijd is schaars, wachten is dodelijk, vertraging is verlies en alles moet snel, snel, snel. We denken met het horloge in de hand en schamen ons voor onze rust.

A Pact with the Devil


Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

In the summer of 2014 the world watched in shock as ISIL captured Mosul – Iraq’s second city - and took control of territory the size of Britain.

The brutal approach of terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria was not new; however, the main reaction of the West came when ISIL brutally beheaded American and British citizens in front of cameras.

The abhorrent act was denounced by Western politicians and media, but almost all failed to point out that Britain has a long history of involvement with such groups and has been prepared to ally with them when it suits the interests of London.

This documentary traces to roots of ISIL to the darkest pages of British imperial history.

Hidden Influence: The Rise of Collectivism



Hidden Influence: The Rise of Collectivism is the first film in a 3 part saga. This chapter documents how the ruling class, through their billion dollar foundations, have infiltrated the public education system in the west and have used it as a tool to indoctrinate children into a totalitarian ideology.

This film explores the chronological paper trail uncovered by Charlotte Iserbyt, who was fired from her post as the Senior Policy Advisor for the United States Department of Education in 1982 when she released classified documents discussing the use of technology, specifically computers to psychologically manipulate American students.We will then examine an investigation into the influence of these foundations, launched by the United State congress in the 1950's.

Finally we will fast forward to today and look at how the philosophy these foundations have sponsored for the last 100 years has, and continues to effect the education system today, and how Canadian children are being indoctrinated into the same collectivist brainwashing as their American counterparts. At the same time we will examine the role of these foundations in promoting radical, authoritarian ideologies on college and university campuses.

The Coming Financial Collapse Of Great Britain UK Explained



There is no precise definition of an economic collapse. The term has been used to describe a broad range of bad economic conditions, ranging from a severe, prolonged depression with high bankruptcy rates and high unemployment (such as the Great Depression of the 1930s), to a breakdown in normal commerce caused by hyperinflation (such as in Weimar Germany in the 1920s), or even an economically caused sharp increase in the death rate and perhaps even a decline in population (such as in countries of the former USSR in the 1990s).

The Union: Business Behind Getting High


Canada, 2007

The film explores the growth, sale and trafficking of cannabis. The documentary examines the underground market by interviewing growers, police officers, criminologists, psychologists, economists, doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, revealing how the trade is booming despite being a criminal enterprise.

The history of cannabis and the reasons for its present prohibition are discussed, often comparing it to the prohibition of alcohol in the United States in the 1920s, suggesting that gang drug warfare and other negative aspects associated with cannabis are a result of prohibition, not the drug itself. The gangs that grow and traffic the drugs are likened to those that appeared in major US cities during Prohibition, with the intention of profiting from the sale of illegal alcohol.

The film answers many questions about cannabis, including the purported health effects of cannabis use, the gateway drug theory, and what could happen if cannabis was legalized. The film also discusses the medicinal value of the cannabis plant and what the pharmaceutical industry stands to lose from cannabis legalization.

To witness the eerie spectacle of a medium entering a trance state and being possessed by the Oracle is to confront profound questions about the very nature of human consciousness.

Frontline: The Fight For Yemen



2015 - Yemen is being torn apart by a toxic political crisis between a weak national government and a rebel movement known as the Houthis, who have taken over the capital of Sanaa and ousted the president. The resulting power vacuum has allowed extremists groups like Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and ISIS to expand their influence in the country.

Amid the escalating turmoil, a coalition of nations led by Saudi Arabia has launched a military campaign against the Houthi rebels, raising the odds that the fight for Yemen could soon spillover into a much larger regional and sectarian war.

So who is fighting who in Yemen, and what does each side in the increasingly complex battle stand for?

The Secret Bank Bailout



50 billion euros in Greece, 70 billion euros in Ireland, 40 billion euros in Spain - one Euro-country after another is forced to support its banks with huge sums of money in order to equalize the losses incurred by money worldwide from bad loans. But where do the billions go anyway? Who are the beneficiaries? With this simple question the award-winning business journalist and nonfiction author Harald Schumann travels across Europe and gets surprising answers.

The rescued are not in the poorer Euro states - unlike commonly believed - but mainly in Germany and France. A large part of the money ends up with the creditors of the banks that want to be saved or must be saved. And although these investors have obviously made bad investments, they are - against all logic of the free market economy - protected at the expense of the general public against any losses.

Why? Who gets the money? Actually, simple questions, but that regard the core of European identity. Maybe the most passionate film on the banking crisis.

Mehr als 500 Milliarden Euro haben die Eurostaaten und der Internationale Währungsfonds (IWF) den Krisenländern Griechenland, Irland, Portugal und Zypern geliehen, um sie zahlungsfähig zu halten.

Aber im Gegenzug übertrugen die Kreditgeber nicht gewählten Beamten aus den drei Institutionen IWF, Europäischer Zentralbank und Europäischer Kommission - der Troika - eine enorme Macht. Ohne jede öffentliche Kontrolle zwangen die Beamten den Regierungen eine Politik auf, die das soziale Gefüge zerreißt und die Demokratie außer Kraft setzt.

The Greater Good



THE GREATER GOOD is an award winning character-driven documentary that explores the cultural intersections where parenting meets modern medicine and individual rights collide with politics. 

This documentary tells the rarely heard stories of three families adversely impacted by vaccination. This important perspective on the issue of vaccine safety has been left out of the mainstream media debate for too long. These courageous families show us that it is time to Think Again:

THE GREATER GOOD is inspiring parents nationwide to learn more about the issue, and to foster an informed, balanced conversation with their doctors, schools and communities.

Few issues are more controversial, more hotly debated or more divisive than vaccines. As new parents, we wanted to dig deep into this complex and polarizing issue so that we could learn firsthand what experts believe, share that information with the public, and open the hearts and minds of viewers to the fact that vaccine injuries do occur. Our goal is to create a rational discussion on the subject of vaccine safety and to help ensure a safer and more effective vaccine program in America today.

The topic of vaccinations is right up there with religion and politics as something “not to discuss around the Thanksgiving table.” THE GREATER GOOD aims to change that paradigm. The film looks at the issue through a new lens, taking a step back to see the bigger picture. We present the issue with all of its complexities and nuances and hope to create a safe space by bringing the rational back to the discussion of vaccinations. We hope the film will serve as a resource for parents, physicians and other concerned audiences to support a national dialogue on vaccines and vaccine safety

Our exclusive interview with Richard Anderson Falk presents an in-depth, first-hand insight into a myriad of issues pertaining to Iran’s political affairs before and after the Islamic revolution with a particular focus on the US policy towards Iran in both periods. 

Richard Flak is an American professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University. From 2008 to 2014, he was United Nations Special Rappoerteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1968.

In our informative, thought-provoking documentary, Falk deals with issues such as the CIA-orchestrated overthrow of Iran’s prime minister in 1953 and the reasons behind America’s tricky support of the Shah of Iran before the Islamic Revolution. He also talks about Ayatollah Khomeini’s beliefs and ideas about the goals of the Islamic Revolution.

Finally he puts into perspective the US policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the role the Zionist regime plays into forcing the US to weight its strategies in favor of the Israeli regime’s interests.

Reinhard Gehlen, the CIA and the Nazis



This is the first authoritative account of the postwar relationship between General Reinhard Gehlen, a figure unique in the history of espionage, and American intelligence.

Eleven years after the defeat of Germany, Gehlen, Hitler's chief of eastern front intelligence, became head of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) for the democratic West German government of Konrad Adenauer. The core of his staff in the BND were the same officers who had served with him under Hitler. The instruments for this metamorphosis were agencies of Gehlen's former enemy: U.S. Army Intelligence and the CIA.

How did this happen and why? Was there a Nazi connection? Read more.
