TERMINAL F: CHASING EDWARD SNOWDEN 

John Goetz
(DK 2015)

 

The chase for NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden was the largest, world-wide manhunt ever conducted in history.  And yet, despite everything, Snowden managed to slip though the mesh tightly drawn by the NSA, CIA, FBI, State Department, NATO and Interpol. How did he do it? "Cherchez la femme" is a part of the answer: the film reveals the vital help offered him by a strong-willed woman sent by Wikileaks.  But there is more, including State Department blundering, Chinese invisible diplomacy and pure luck.

The film is a documentary but shot and narrated like a thriller.

GIOVEDI' 19  GENNAIO  ore 20.00

The director of the award-winning film "Selma", Ava DuVernay, investigates how, in the U.S. today, thousands of Black people get put into slavery and deprived of their right to vote...legally, because of a loophole in the 13th amendment.  A must see. "Simmers with anger and burns with eloquence" - LA Times

 

GIOVEDI' 2  FEBBRAIO  ore 20.00

From the Prologue: "We live in a world where the powerful deceive us. We know they lie, they know we know, they don't care. We say we care, but we do nothing. And nothing ever changes. It's normal. Welcome to post-truth politics."  A highly suggestive work of art, HyperNormalization will open your eyes to connections you had never considered between the political and social events of the past half century.  Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Morris once said: "I want to be Adam Curtis when I grow up."  At his third film only, Curtis has become a master.

The Kill Team

USA

2014

The major cause of death among U.S. troops in Afghanistan is suicide. This film examines the immense psychological pressure troops there face, how war crimes become a game and how trying to denounce them makes a soldier... the enemy.

 

Thursday, April 27th:

We Come as Friends

France/Austria

2014

 

A surreal, moving, infuriating, breathtaking portrait of South Sudan, in the throes of a post-colonialism that is “post” in name only. More than a political pamphlet, the film is a mosaic of images that make you feel what people there feel.

 

la collaborazione tra

Circolo arcobaleno e U.S. CITIZEN FOR PEACE & JUSTICE

è partita nel febbraio 2008

 

Alle 20 del GIOVEDI' (un giovedì si e uno no) la sala bar si riempie di gente proveniente da vari continenti (USA, India, Africa, America Latina) unita dall'uso della lingua inglese. Non mancano italiani, anche se pochi, attirati dall'occasione di vedere documenti che per lo più non sono stati distribuiti in Italia, né lo saranno in seguito.

Già dalle 19.00 anche la piccola cucina del Circolo si riempie, ma degli odori della ristorazione italiana, che poi continua ai tavoli della sala di proiezione.

 

I film sono per lo più documentari che rispecchiano l'impegno politico dei soci del cineforum, ma non mancano documentari ecologisti e qualche fiction.
