Un cortometraje en torno a la educación, el conformismo y la resistencia social.
“Jesus Camp” follows several young children as they prepare to attend a summer camp where the kids will get their daily dose of evangelical Christianity. Through interviews with Becky Fischer, the children, and others, “Jesus Camp” illustrates the unswerving belief of the faithful. A housewife and homeschooling mother tells her son that creationism has all the answers. Footage from inside the camp shows young children weeping and wailing as they promise to stop their sinning. Child after child is driven to tears. Juxtapose these scenes with clips from a more moderate Christian radio host (who is appalled by such tactics), and Jesus Camp seems to pose a clear question: are these children being brainwashed?
En este documental John Pilger sugiere que, más allá de llevar la democracia a todo el mundo, como siempre proclama el Gobierno de los EUA, en realidad éste está haciendo todo lo posible para obstaculizar su avance. John Pilger realiza entrevistas exclusivas con oficiales del gobierno americanos, incluyendo agentes que revelan por primera vez como la CIA ha desplegado y está desplegando su guerra particular en Latino América. Pilger argumenta que la verdadera democracia popular se encuentra más bien entre los países más pobres de Latino América, cuyos movimientos y avances son ignorados por los medios

‘POSSESSED’ enters the complicated worlds of four hoarders; people whose lives are dominated by their relationship to possessions. The film questions whether hoarding is a symptom of mental illness or a revolt against the material recklessness of consumerism. When does collecting become hoarding and why do possessions exert such an influence on our lives?
