Blazing Trail: A Journey Through the Indian Revolution

December 19, 2006

Blazing Trail: A Journey Through the Indian Revolution

An awe inspiring video documentary from the Red areas of India. This film documents the emergence of the Indian revolutionary process, coming as it is in a world of struggle, mass upheaval, rebellion and revolution!

This film includes footage of the Vietnamese people’s defeat of the US imperialists, the victory and success of the Chinese People’s Revolution and massive street rebellions shaking the citadels of imperialism. It shows the overall dialectical development of revolution, both in the oppressed and oppressor nations, shaking the imperialist system’s foundations.

Today in India, the communist forces are stronger, united within the Communist Party Of India (Maoist), leading the Indian revolution by developing People’s War. A must own for anyone who is seriously considering a whole new world.

This movie is a saga of heroism and sacrifice in the face of a brutal enemy masquarading as the World’s “largest democracy”, foundations are being laid for a New Democratic India..

The Corporation – Part 1-Corporations are Legal Psychopaths

November 16, 2006

The Corporation

THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Footage from pop culture, advertising, TV news, and corporate propaganda, illuminates the corporation’s grip on our lives. Taking its legal status as a “person” to its logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” Provoking, witty, sweepingly informative.
The Corporation includes forty interviews with corporate insiders and critics – including Milton Friedman, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.

Winner of 24 INTERNATIONAL AWARDS, 10 of them AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARDS including the AUDIENCE AWARD for DOCUMENTARY in WORLD CINEMA at the 2004 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL. The long-awaited DVD, available now in Australia and coming in March to North America, contains over 8 hour of additional footage.

The film is based on the book The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan.

" We " – A documentary overlaid with the words of Arundhati Roy, and images of humanity and the world we live in today.

October 17, 2006

” We ” – A documentary overlaid with the words of Arundhati Roy,images of humanity and the world we live in today.

Watch it on the google video website

In 1997 Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize for her novel “The God of Small Things”. In 2004 she was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize.

The film examines the widely unregarded worlds of Anthropology and Geopolitics in a very dynamic manner, and is probably stylistically quite unlike any documentary that you have previously seen.

It covers the world politics of power, war, corporations, deception and exploitation. It is particularly hard hitting when it comes to the United States and western powers in general.

Its unconventional style has proven to be very successful in engaging younger viewers – many of whom find more traditional content dealing with these subjects quite dry and uninteresting. It is almost in the style of a music video, featuring contemporary music (lush, curve, love & rockets, boards of canada, nine inch nails, dead can dance, amon tobin, massive attack, totoise, telepop, placebo and faith less) overlaid with the words of Arundhati Roy, and images of humanity and the world we live in today.
