The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, Directed and Photographed by Kim Bartley Donnacha O’Briain Ireland, 2003

HUGO CHAVEZ ELECTED PRESIDENT OF VENEZUELA IN 1998, IS A COLORFUL, UNPREDICTABLE FOLK HERO, beloved by his nation’s working class and a tough-as-nails, quixotic opponent to the power structure that would see him deposed. Two independent filmmakers were inside the presidential palace on April 11, 2002, when he was forcibly removed from office. They were also present 48 hours later when, remarkably, he returned to power amid cheering aides. Their film records what was probably history’s shortest-lived coup d’état. It’s a unique document about political muscle and an extraordinary portrait of the man The Wall Street Journal credits with making Venezuela “Washington‚s biggest Latin American headache after the old standby, Cuba.”

This and John Pilger’s ‘War On Democracy’  are both worth a watch to understand deception in today’s world and how mass media is being used to achieve it. Do not kid yourself into thinking your nice, clean , bought and paid-for “Western Democracy” is any different.

Spin by Brian Springer

“Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about “homos,” Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon — all presuming they’re off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.”

I saw this almost a year ago and have only just come across it again. Watch this, sit down for a while, have a glass of water and then have a good hard think about inventive and entertaining ways you can destroy your television set. Film it and post it on youtube for all our viewing pleasure 😉

USA 1966, A Documentary

“This documentary was filmed by my mother in 1966 during the first Bolshoi Ballet tour in the USA. 40 years later the old film has been digitized, resulting in more than 2 hours of raw material, which after editing resulted in this 30-minutes movie: common scenes of daily life in New York City, Washington DC and Philadelphia as seen in 1966.

Intriuging and beautiful on many levels with a gorgeous soundtrack.

Seduction of a Generation Via ‘Sensitivity Training’ (Otherwise Known As Brain-washing), Narrated By G. Edward Griffin ** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Wikipedia on G. Edward Griffin 

Very prophetic filmstrip from 1969, narrated by G. Edward Griffin, about the use of ‘sensitivity training’ as a tool in social engineering.

I look back through my childhood and I wonder more and more how much of what I’ve been taught is real.

Watch this movie and be prepared to take a long hard look in the mirror: at the world over your shoulder.

want to know how your x box got to look so cool ? how does vice city look so real? want to know how your universe is constructed? what is the fractile universe ? three people control your future want to see who they are? what is the mandelbrot set? the golden ratio to the tenth power.this documentary was recorded in the eighties with Arthur C Clark author of 2001

Ever since I had a Mandelbrot set program on my old BBC ‘B’ computer and later read Ira Lewin’s “Complexity” I have been fascinated with mathematics and fractal geometry. I’m sure this mathematics, or at least its principles, will have something to do with AI in the future.

Afghan Massacre – The Convoy Of Death, Produced And Directed By Ex-BBC Producer Jamie Doran

“Produced and directed by Irish filmmaker and former BBC producer Jamie Doran, the film tells the story of thousands of prisoners who surrendered to the US military’s Afghan allies after the siege of Kunduz. According to the film, some three thousand of the prisoners were forced into sealed containers and loaded onto trucks for transport to Sheberghan prison. When the prisoners began shouting for air, U.S.-allied Afghan soldiers fired directly into the truck, killing many of them. The rest suffered through an appalling road trip lasting up to four days, so thirsty they clawed at the skin of their fellow prisoners as they licked perspiration and even drank blood from open wounds.”

Holocaust.
