This is the award-winning film, The Ghosts of Jeju. I went to Jeju Island, S. Korea in 2012 to document a lengthy nonviolent, peaceful protest against the construction of a large naval base to accommodate Obama's "Pivot to Asia." The base was destroying a 500 year old farming and fishing village on a pristine coastline. What I discovered made me cry and angry at what my country had done on this island immediately after WWII and before the Korean conflict. Beginning on April 3, 1946, the United States Military Government of Korea trained, equipped what they called a Constabulary and commanded their actions which led to the massacre of as many as 60,000 unarmed peasants who were seeking freedom and the right to self-determination. As the US has done with every insurgency anywhere in the world is to react with overwhelming force. This is a historical documentary, using previously classified photos and film, that exposed not only the massacre, but America's goal of full spectrum dominance of the planet.
Filmmaker Regis Tremblay states what few others dare to say. Humanity is on the brink of extinction! Nuclear power is not safe. 48 of America’s nuclear power plants are leaking and there is no way to get rid of nuclear waste. America’s reckless provocations of both Russia and China, two nuclear-armed countries, risk a nuclear holocaust from which no one survives. Climate change and global warming, if not mitigated immediately, will end the human experiment on earth sooner rather than later.
A shocking documentary that traces the origins of U.S. genocides, military interventions and wars from the 15th century when the white, colonial explorers first came to the Americas to
the very present. American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny, and the right to claim the earth
and its resources as their own are the beliefs that are the foundation of American foreign
policy in the 21st Century that has humanity on the brink of extinction.
Dr. Helen Caldicot, Ray McGovern, Chris Hedges, Ann Wright, Peter Kusnick, Bill McKibben,
David Vine and other activists, scholars, and authors explain and clarify the crisis and
threats to life on the planet.
The only real hope lies in the result of the epic battle for humanity’s survival between two contrasting world views. On one side is the unipolar, capitalist world-domination by the U.S. enforced by the most lethal military the world has ever seen.
On the other side is a view held by Russia, China and the BRICS nations built on a multi-
polar world based on respect, the sovereignty of all nations, international law, the equal value
of all people, and cooperation.
So here we are. Humanity’s epic battle for survival. An old
paradigm based on white, colonial domination and empire
versus the shared vision of others who are working for a
peaceful world based on justice, international law and the
prosperity of all people.
The only question is, will the crazed neocons in Washington,
realizing they have lost, take the whole world down with them.
The escalating downturn of US relations with Russia has made the world a more dangerous place than at any time during the Cold War, including during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
This film explores the many reasons why the US foreign policy establishment since the end of World War II hates all things Russian. With the exception of John Kennedy who sought to end nuclear weapons and to seek peace with Russia, every president since has used Russia as a threat to American interests, security and Democracy.
Is Putin a thug and an assassin? Or he is a great, patriotic leader of a country that was nearly destroyed by President George Herbert Walker Bush’s CIA good old boys, Bill Clinton and the CIA asset Boris Yeltsin?
But, perhaps the greatest fear is that Russia has regained its superpower status and because of the sanctions, has established close economic, diplomatic, political and military relations with China and the BRICS nations. And this is the biggest threat to American hegemony and capitalist interests around the world.
Nearly thirty years have past since the fall of the Soviet Union and still America and the West refuse to believe that Communism is dead and that Russia now embraces a market economy and most of the political and social values of the West. Thanks to Putin, Russia is again a global superpower and a threat to American hegemony and interests.
As citizens of this country, we have a responsibility for its actions. It is my hope that as Americans, we can accept the truth of our past and acknowledge the errors of our present course so that we can take our rightful place as one among equals with the rest of the world.
