Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2006
MetropoleFilmworx LLC, independent filmmaker responsible for "Back From Iraq: The US Soldier Speaks," is desperately seeking other Iraq War films and documentaries made by other independent filmmakers for distribution and cross promotion.
Producer Nancy Fulton says "If you have an independent film or documentary about the Iraq War, we'd like to hear about it. We are in a position to distribute films online and on DVD, and to cross promote films effectively. We run press releases for our films regularly and we don't mind mentioning films we don't sell."
Metropole Filmworx LLC wants to hear about your film whether it is for or against the war, whether its ten minutes long or two hundred minutes long. They even want to hear about your film if its available for free on video.google.com or through http://www.itunes.com.
Nancy Fulton continues "Our sincere belief is that the Iraq war is the "Elephant in the American Livingroom. It is the thing we cannot talk about with our families and friends. It is the national discussion we cannot have about the single most important factor in national and international politics, national and international economics, national and international security."
The mainstream media is not addressing:
- Why we went to war.
- How the war is being waged.
- The costs of fighting the war.
- The costs of winning/losing the war.
- The casualties on either side of the war.
- The increasing instability in Iran and the rest of the Middle East due to the war.
- The long term impact of the Iraq war on the people of the US, the people of Iraq, or the people of the planet Earth.
As the old song from the 60's says "There's something happening here . . . " and the American people don't have the information required to figure out exactly what it is.
The people of the United States are desperate for information, for unvarnished facts and first-person insights, about the war. They are looking for the footage that doesn't get on TV or in the newspaper. They want to know the truth because they understand that lack of information is having an immediate impact on their lives.
The mainstream media did not predict that the Iraq war would lead to gas prices over $3 or that the war and occupation would last more than three years with no end in sight. The media didn't predict the $3+ dollar price tag either. It has not explained the billions in no-bid contracts, described who is getting those billions, or reviewed why failure to adhere to the terms of government contracts isn't resulting in mass prosecution of government contractors. There's so much we don't know.
The truth is, we need the truth.
Independent filmmakers are shaping 21st century journalism because, in many cases, they are literally the soldiers on the front lines of the Iraq war. They are also the civilians, armed only with cameras, who travel to Iraq on their own dime, with or without the dubious protection of an NGO. They are the "home grown radicals" who research which politicians took us to war and which benefit from the businesses that profit from it.
