Love American Skin | Photography Last week German photographer and filmmaker Diana Scheunemann unveiled her probing debut film, Love American Skin, a road trip across America that documented the many contrasting characters and viewpoints that make up one of the biggest nation’s in the world. Compelling watching, the film throws up opinions that may ruffle a few feathers but adds to our understanding of the vastness of the country, and the differences that one encounters from state to state. We catch up with Diana to talk through her experiences of making the film. Me and my partner had been living in NYC for a few years. You hear all these partisan views on the TV but we wanted to see for ourselves what this country we now live in is like, and form an opinion based on our own experience instead of from Hollywood movies and charged news commentators. We found nearly all of the Americans we met to be really open. There are some states where you can be shot just for stepping on someone’s property. That people are people.
Standing Up To The Experts by Orlando Wood In a small room in Austin, Texas, a group of fifteen people are single-handedly deciding what is taught to the next generation of American children. The highly politicized fifteen-member Texas State Board of Education is currently going through the once-in-a-decade process of rewriting the teaching and textbook standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas affects the whole nation. Texas is the nation’s largest textbook market. Over the course of the current review, the board has been focusing on infusing the school curriculum with broader conservative and religious themes. Simply put, our goal is to shed light on this important issue and the key players in this process -- we will explain their goals, explore the scope of their influence, and delve into the personal motivations behind their actions. In the time we’ve been working on this project, we’ve amassed over 200 hours of footage. This is where you come in… Thank you!

Gods and Goddesses [Gods and Aliens] When you study the mythologies of ancient civilizations, you realize they are all designed by the same geometric blueprint that follows into humanity's current timeline. In the physical we find duality on all levels, especially in the pantheons of creational forces linked to one another. We further find the pattern of creation and destruction ... repeating in the cycles of time ... embracing the human experience. Designing the gods and goddesses falls into the same categories of duality - good and bad - light and dark - forever seeking balance and the return to full consciousness. The study of Ancient Alien Theory allows one to understand that creator gods more than likely were aliens who created the race presently called humans, in its various forms, by biogenetic experimentation and manipulation. Always we find Gods who came from the sky (higher frequency) and those that came from the sea of creation (collective unconsciousness).

Documentary List - The best documentaries to watch online The Viking Warriors The Vikings (from Old Norse víkingr) were seafaring north Germanic people who raided, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries. The Vikings employed wooden longships with wide, shallow-draft hulls, allowing navigation in rough seas or in shallow river waters. The ships could be landed on beaches, and their light weight enabled them to be hauled over portages. These versatile ships allowed the Vikings to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Nekor.
