2008 – IRAN (Is Not The Problem) is a feature length documentary film responding to the failure of the American mass media to provide the public with relevant and accurate information about the standoff between the US and Iran, as happened before with the lead up to the invasion of Iraq.
We have heard that Iran is a nuclear menace in defiance of the international community, bent on “wiping Israel off the map”, supporting terrorism, and unwilling to negotiate. This documentary disputes these claims as they are presented to us and puts them in the context of present and historical US imperialism and hypocrisy with respect to Iran. It looks at the struggle for democracy inside Iran, the consequences of the current escalation and the potential US and/or Israeli attack, and suggests some alternatives to consider.
This 79 minute documentary features Antonia Juhasz, Larry Everest, and other activists and Iranian-Americans. The goal of this movie is to promote dialog and change the debate on Iran, so please consider organizing a screening, big or small, in your area.
Produced by Aaron Newman, an independent film-maker and part of the Scary Cow film co-op in San Francisco. He is an anti-imperialism/pro-democracy activist, founder of the SF Chomsky Book Club, and a member of Hands Off Iran. There are differences of opinion between many of the voices in this film, but all agree that a war would be unjustified. Below are brief video introductions for each of the people who participated.

The Panama Deception is a 1992 documentary film that won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.The film is critical of the actions of the US military during the 1989 invasion of Panama by the United States, covering the conflicting reasons for the invasion and depicting the US media as biased. It was directed by Barbara Trent of the Empowerment Project and was narrated by actress Elizabeth Montgomery.

The film asserts that the U.S. government invaded Panama primarily to renegotiate the terms of the Torrijos–Carter Treaties. Another allegation made by the film is that the United States tested some form of laser or energy weapon during the invasion. The film also includes footage of mass graves uncovered after the US troops had withdrawn, burned down neighborhoods, as well as depictions of some of the 20,000 refugees who fled the fighting.

    Absolute nonsense, Of course the CIA was protecting Noriega, but the were protecting him because they were running the drugs, now the movie puts out the drivel that Noriega did this all on his own. I doubt that. People are in power because they play ball

    Americans troops did this same thing in Iraq while people in America watched on T.V. and cheered. God will not be mocked.

    This is just one of the many reason God has removed his arm of protection from America. Since 1947 the U.S. has intervened in the affairs of over 50 third world countries. Almost in ever case, either through the use of military force or the involvement of the CIA.

    Did anyone notice that the people of Panama had no weapons? What do you suppose our military is
    doing in South Africa right now? Do you think that Mr. hope and change is any different? You think it
    can’t happen here; dream on, and may your chains rest lightly upon you.

    I’m glad I watched this, I had no idea this took horrendous murdering took place. This is so sad what the U.S.A. has become. I had a hate for the Bush family and this just reinforced my hate further. If there’s such a place as hell, the Bush family will certainly be there. I’m very glad I am a American, but I’m not proud. Who could be proud of a country that kills innocent people of all ages everyday somewhere in the world, all for the love of money and power.
