Premiering this week at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, the new documentary, “Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield,” follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill to Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen as he chases down the hidden truths behind America’s expanding covert wars. We’re joined by Scahill and the film’s director, Rick Rowley, an independent journalist with Big Noise Films. “We’re looking right now at a reality that President Obama has essentially extended the very policies that many of his supporters once opposed under President Bush,” says Scahill, author of the bestseller “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army,” and a forthcoming book named after his film. “One of the things that humbles both of us is [when] you arrive at a village in Afghanistan and knock on someone’s door, you’re the first American they’ve seen since the Americans that kicked that door in and killed half their family,” Rowley says. “We promised them that we would do everything we could to make their stories be heard in the U.S. — finally, we’re able to keep those promises.”

Time travel and teleportation have long been popular modes of transportation in science fiction. H.G. Wells’ book, The Time Machine, was published in 1898 and launched a science-fiction time-travel genre that has spawned dozens of wildly successful and diverse entertainments, from action-horror films like The Terminator series, to lighthearted teen comedies like Back to the Future and Hot Tub Time Machine. In 1966, Star Trek made its television debut and the teleportation directive, “Beam me up, Scotty,” entered the pop-culture lexicon.

Like time travel, teleportation was used to tell a variety of different stories. The mutant Nightcrawler, from the X-Men comic books and films, used his powers of teleportation to assist his fellow mutants in a swashbuckling struggle for survival, while director David Cronenberg brilliantly used the technology as a backdrop for his 1986 remake of The Fly.

But according to some conspiracy theorists, surfing the space-time continuum is more than just a fictional flight to the ’50s in a souped-up DeLorean—it is a terrifying reality. They claim it all began with a series of bizarre, top-secret experiments during World War II and continue in underground government laboratories to this very day.
