8PM -Culture Jam: Hijacking Commercial Culture
Feature film: Culture Jam: Hijacking Commercial Culture / 2001 (57 min) by Jill Sharpe
Culturejam: Hijacking Commercial Culture delivers a fascinating rap on the 20th Century movement called Culture Jamming. Pranksters and subversive artists are causing a bit of brand damage to corporate mindshare. Jammers, cultural commentators, a billboard advertiser and a constitutional lawyer take us on a wild roller coaster ride through the back streets of our mental environment. Stopping over in San Francisco, New York's Times Square, and Toronto, we catch the jamming in action with Batman-inspired Jack Napier of the Billboard Liberation Front, Disney arch-enemy Reverend Billy from the Church of Stop Shopping and Media Tigress Carly Stasko. Culturejam asks: Is Culture Jamming civil disobedience? Senseless vandalism? The only form of self defense left? http://www.culturejamthefilm.com/

State of the Union by Bryan Boyce 2001 1:43
Baby Bush meets Tubby-land. Completed in August 2001, this project was initially just a simple comic skewering of George W. Bush and his defense policies—but after September 11th, it took on a whole new meaning. State of the Union now has a surreal documentary quality that is genuinely disturbing.
"Bryan Boyce's hilarious Bush-meets-Telletubbies spoof, State of the Union garnered some of the most enthusiastic and raucous audiences of this, or any, festival."
—Paul Power, on 42nd Thessaloniki Film Festival program

The CIA suppression of Peter Dale Scott. In his review of the book, The War Conspiracy, Noam Chomsky remarked on Scott's "meticulous and fascinating analysis of intelligence conspiracies and the links between the 'intelligence community' and corporate power." Now, three decades after the sabotaged publication of the book, Guerrilla News Network presents a beat-driven, design-enhanced video of The War Conspiracy.


Special Report by Bryan Boyce/ 2000 (4 min)
What if TV news wasn't merely horrifying but literally came from horror movies? Bryan Boyce (maker of last year's State of the Union) puts terrifying words in the mouths of America's top-rated merchants of terror.

10PM: GNN 's S/11 Redux and Aftermath
S-11 (Channel) Surfing the Apocalypse / 2001 (12 min)
(GNN) Culled from over 20 hours of television footage recorded over a one month period and across 13 networks, S-11 Redux is a sound-bite blitzkrieg that challenges the messages we have been fed from our mainstream media and the government it serves. Be warned - this video moves quickly and will require at least two viewings to digest its full impact. You may never be able to look at the coverage of S-11 and its post-impact coverage the same way, ever again. www.gnn.tv
Aftermath by GNN (US Premier) aprox 25 minutes

Just weeks prior to the onset of mainstream media's 9/11 commemorative marathon, GNN was contacted by Unanswered Questions, organizers of the eponymous June 10, 2002 press conference at the National Press Club in Washinton, D.C.. During that initial conversation, it was reasoned that the independent media should counter the imminent onslaught of government sponsored (retaliatory) propaganda with a strong investigative piece that did not detract from or compound further the pain and suffering of the nation. Hence, the birth of an association that led to our own unique memorial for that dark day and the victims of its uncertain architects, AfterMath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11.

Satanisn * Shemales * Extreme Pornography * Time Travel * Fetish * Outsider Music * Conspiracy Theories * Weird Science * Mind Controlled Sex o Slaves of the CIA * Robot Sex * Hillbillies on fire…
How far is too far? Well, when it comes to "reality TV", you’d think nothing was too outrageous for prime time these days--but you’d be wrong.
Just 12 days before it was to air on the SCI FI Channel, the Disinformation® series was unceremoniously dropped despite being listed in
TV guides and the TIVO service.
Hosted by Disinformation Company co-founder Richard Metzger, the series caused quite a stir when it aired on the UK’s Channel 4 TV network. The first season was bizarrely scheduled after Ally McBeal and surely messed with the heads of more than a few fans of that show; the second season went even further in challenging the network’s censors, resulting in Channel 4 refusing to air certain segments. Nonetheless, the series was a hit and was bought by SCI FI Channel in the United States. They didn’t quite realize what they’d paid for, apparently, and never aired the programs.
