IN THEIR OWN WORDS: THE UNTOLD STORIES OF 9/11 FAMILIES In late 2006, the movie 9/11 Press For Truth became a worldwide underground hit. It exposed the story of the "Jersey Girls" and their allies--the 9/11 families who had fought for the Commission but ultimately failed in seeing 70% of their questions answered. This is an all new updated edition with unseen interviews and rare news clips plus up-to-the-moment breaking stories.

OCCUPATION 101 With the military occupation of Iraq and Palestinian territories, the U.S. and Israel continue to fuel the rise of worldwide Islamic fundamentalism. This new documentary chronicles the modern history of conflict between Israel and Palestine. The West's oppression of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank results in gross abuses of human rights on both sides. Ignored by western media, the film reveals life under Israeli military rule, the role of the United States in the conflict, and the major obstacles that stand in the way of a lasting and viable peace. Dozens of Middle East experts and peace activists weigh in including Naom Chomsky, Rabbi Michael Lerner, and Phyllis Bennis.

REEL BAD ARABS Adapted from the book of the same name by Jack Shaheen, this new doc exposes a persistent pattern of slanderous Arab stereotyping from the days of silent films until today's blockbusters. American cinema has had a long love affair with Arab villainy and buffoonery, sinister sheikhs and blood-thirsty terrorists. A rich collection of movie clips illustrates the long history of the West's Islamophobia culminating in the present "war on terror".

THE WAR ON DEMOCRACY Veteran filmmaker and independent journalist John Pilger reveals in his brilliant new documentary that in spite of a history of repeated US-backed suppression in Latin America, grassroots democratic movements are gaining ground in Latin America. Pilger provides an historical background of U.S. clandestine intervention in Central and South America over the last century and interviews key government officials who ran the CIA's war in Latin America. Pilger also conducts an exclusive interview 'on the road' with President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

LOOSE CHANGE: FINAL CUT This totally new version of the ground-breaking film exposes the inconsistencies and lies put forward by the Bush administration in the hours, days and weeks after 9/11, and their role in hoaxing the American people that 19 Islamic terrorists were the sole perpetrators of 9/11, the crime of the century. Watch this film for yourself and make up your own mind.
