As current events put heat on Bush administration for Guantanamo Bay, the award-winning film "Intelligence" helps resonate a strong point of view by shedding light on past "un-accounted" political decisions that seem to be repeating today. Milo Ventimiglia stars.

Synopsis: In present day Miami, Collin Mathers played by Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls, Bedford Diaries, Heroes, Rocky Balboa), follows a hot lead to tie up his feature story and reveal new graphic details found behind closed doors in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. His lead is an elderly man (Bill Bolender) with the story of a lifetime who has much more “intelligence” than Collin could have ever imagined.

Milo Ventimiglia carries the role of the ambitious, young reporter Collin Mather. Supported by the experienced and talented Bill Bolender, this feature captivates, taking you to a dark, complex place that most films never get to. Director Allen Martinez’s vision, along with the team of stars he selected, gives this film a strong yet provocative story that exposes a dark corner of American politics.

In 2006, Intelligence has won:

BEST NARRATIVE - Silver Lake Film Festival,

GOLD MEDAL - Audience Award in Park City,

BEST DRAMA - DIY Festival Los Angeles

BEST THRILLER - Beverly Hills Festival

BEST ACTOR NOMINATION - MethodFest

BEST FILM NOMINATION - MethodFest

“I found the background of this politically-charged story fascinating, since it is based on true historical events. Many people don’t realize that the U.S. Secret Service (O.S.S.) hired Nazi war criminals to monitor the Russians in post war Germany and Congress has only just begun to review a fraction of nearly 8 million de-classified documents from over 60 years ago... It shines a light on issues that are, unfortunately, still relevant today” says filmmaker Martinez.

Intelligence will be screening at the Palm Springs International Film Festival August 24-30 2006 and the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival October 5-15 2006. The film is planning to be released in December via digital distribution on the internet and the filmmaker is relying on the film's fans to support it's grass-roots campaign on Myspace and YouTube and help expose the film virally.
