2012 – The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private corporation headed by the former chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties. The CPD is a duopoly which allows the major party candidates to draft secret agreements about debate arrangements including moderators, debate format and even participants. The result is a travesty riddled with sterile, non-contentious arguments which consistently exclude alternative voices that Americans want to hear.

This documentary also reveals the big corporations who “sponsor” the CPD and how third party candidates are purposely excluded. One of these sponsors, Annheiser Busch, is partly owned by Senator John McCain’s wife.  Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura’s election as an independent candidate proves that opening up debates can lead to real change – something the entrenched Republican and Democratic Parties don’t want to see.

On the 20th anniversary of its original release, The FBI’s War on Black America is being made available on DVD for the first time. Co-produced/Co-directed by Deb Ellis and Denis Meuller (directors of Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train), The FBI’s War on Black America looks at a dark period in our country’s history.

Includes both archival footage and contemporary interviews with people involved in the movement.

The FBI’s War on Black America offers a thought provoking look at a government-sanctioned conspiracy, the FBI’s counter intelligence program known as Cointelpro. This documentary establishes historical perspective on the measures initiated by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI which aimed to discredit black political figures and forces of the late 1960′s and early 1970′s.
