Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: Docudrama “Operation Terror” January 2013


Documentaries are not the only medium through which people have their worldviews successfully challenged. Some of us are more affected by storytelling. Good fiction, music and lyrics, poetry, and fairy tales can often pierce the depths of the psyche where facts and rational analysis fail.

For this reason, this month we are pleased to air the docudrama Operation Terror, written and produced by filmmaker Art Olivier,  a former mayor of Bellflower, CA.  This film tells a story, and does it well considering its low budget and that it was written and produced by a first-time filmmaker.

But don’t hold your breath for this film to reach the theaters. Although it is well-produced, each time Olivier’s staff revealed its content, the theaters suddenly lost interest. [Read more…]

Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Meetings: “Genetic Roulette” and “Unequal Justice” November 2012

Two videos will be shown this month.

(1) Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives  (85 min)

From studying 9/11, most become aware that the corruption within our government has reached draconian lows. Our featured documentary this month reveals another example of this corruption. This time our health is at stake.

Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and of all future generations was put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

This seminal documentary by Jeffrey Smith, author of the world’s best-selling book on GMOs, Seeds of Deception, provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

We will have copies of this film available for a donation at this showing, but if you are unable to join us, you may watch the film online, and you may purchase it here.  When you purchase the film, you will receive a bonus DVD, Seeds of Freedom, which contains the following informative specials:

Seeds of Freedom (28 min)
Narrated by Jeremy Irons, produced by The Gaia Foundation and African Biodiversity Network, this landmark film shows how the story of seed at the hands of multinationals has become one of loss, control, dependence and debt.

The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods (42 min)
Jeffrey Smith presents a concise, hard-hitting talk to more than 800 healthcare practitioners at Andrew Weil’s Arizona Center for Integrated Medicine conference in 2011.

The Politics of GMOs (16 min)
This presentation excerpt describes the unholy alliance between the US government and Monsanto, as well as some highlights of Monsanto’s dark history.

12 Short Public Service Announcements


(2) Unequal Justice: The Relentless Rise of the 1% Court (20 min)

This short film explores the growing pro-corporate bias in key Court decisions and their real-world impact on ordinary Americans. Steadily and relentlessly, the Court has been transformed into an institution that frequently serves the interests of the wealthiest one percent. [Read more…]
