TERMINAL F: CHASING EDWARD SNOWDEN
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.

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
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.

of the American Mind:
Israel’s Public Relations War in the United States
How Israel has managed to win the battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of American citizens, despite worldwide condemnation of its occupation of Palestine.

The Kill Team
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
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.
Exposing Imperialism in Haiti
Absolutely sensational footage showing, minute by minute, the U.S. coup d'etat in Haiti to overturn the democratic Aristide government and install a police state obedient to Washington. At last, a camera has captured what happens - unreported - in so many other countries where Marines are sent in to "restore democracy". Mind-boggling.
A must see for any political activist... and for all citizens of conscience.

Do Not Resist
Tribeca Best Documentary.
A stunning look at America's newly militarized police forces: from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team to a police training seminar that teaches "righteous violence” to real scenes of soldier cops in action in Ferguson.
Thursday, June 8th:
The Other Side of Immigration USA
Why so many people leave the Mexican countryside to work in the U.S. and what happens to the families and communities left behind. A fresh per-spective on undocumented immigration and an invitation to rethink the question.
Thursday, June 22nd:
The Killing$ of Tony Blair
Tony Blair deceitfully destroyed the Labour Party as leader (while pocket-ing billions), deceitfully sold the country the Iraq war as Prime Minister (idem), yet today is honored as a man of peace and faith. The film shows how he pulled it off.

I Am Not Your Negro
“The story of the Negro in America is the story of America, and it is not a pretty story,” writes James Baldwin. The film recounts the lives and assassi-nations of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.
