The Revolution Will Not Be Televised The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (a.k.a. Chavez: Inside the Coup) is a 2002 documentary about the April 2002 Venezuelan coup attempt which briefly deposed Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. A television crew from Ireland's Radio Telifís Éireann happened to be recording a documentary about Chávez during the events of April 11, 2002. Shifting focus, they followed the events as they occurred. During their filming, the crew recorded images of the events that they say contradict explanations given by Chávez opposition, the private media, the US State Department, and then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. The documentary says that the coup was the result of a conspiracy between various old guard and anti-Chávez factions within Venezuela and the United States. Watch the full documentary now

Aluna the Movie | The Kogi About the Movie ALUNA is being made by and with the KOGI, a genuine lost civilization hidden on an isolated triangular pyramid mountain in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia, nearly five miles high, on the Colombian-Caribbean coast. The Kogi say that without thought, nothing could exist. This is a problem, because we are not just plundering the world, we are dumbing it down, destroying both the physical structure and the thought underpinning existence. The Kogi are the last surviving civilization from the world of the Inca and Aztec, and their cities are untouched by our world. The journey to reach their native lands involves passing through a jungle region known to local tomb robbers and cocaine makers as “hell,” where nature and armed gangs combine to seal the Kogi away. Their spiritual leaders are raised in the dark for their first 18 years, to communicate with “ALUNA”, the thought process that shapes and maintains reality, the source of life and intelligence.

Fire in the Blood - A Tale of Medicine, Monopoly & Malice - A film by Dylan Mohan Gray Fire in the Blood A Tale of Medicine, Monopoly & Malice Fire in the Blood tells the shocking story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs in Africa and the global south in the 1990s, leading to the preventable deaths of at least ten million people. Shot on four continents and featuring contributions from global figures such as Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, and Joseph Stiglitz, the film takes us inside the lethal decision-making process that led to this humanitarian catastrophe. And it shows how millions more people would have died if not for the passion and tactical ingenuity of a group of courageous and relentless activists. DVD includes the feature length documentary, as well as an abridged version shortened for use in the classroom. Filmmaker Info Praise from Renowned Figures and Scholars "a blessing... full of conviction, passion and unanswerable argument." - John Le Carré "Maximize the people's health or maximize private profits?

Black Ice - Arctic 30 Documentary Bilderberg’$ Club This film, by Queralt Antu, explores the truth about Bilderberg’s club. David Rockefeller and Price Bernhard of the Netherlands founded this club in 1954. At the time two of the most important oil companies in the world: Shell and Exxon-Mobil were behind the club. Once the original founders aged, Jacob Wallenberg, the largest shareholder in Ericson, took over along with Etienne Davignon from the European Commission. Because his intention was to turn Bilderberg into the most powerful club on Earth, Wallenberg placed his niece’s husband, Kofi Annan, as manager of the club. Bilderberg was originally created to be a sort of debate club or thinking club where people would come together to discuss issues related to politics, economy, and business. The frightening thing about Bilderberg’s is the fact that everything is handled with extreme secrecy. Do these club members deliberately provoke all the economical and social problems our world faces? BILDERBERG’$ CLUB from QUERALT ANTÚ on Vimeo.

The resulting scandal, alternately hilarious and discomfiting, illuminates the waking nightmare of consumerism in a country still adjusting to the strengths and pitfalls of the concept."
