Here’s a complete review of the Liberty Film Festival. I wish I could have seen all of the films but unfortunately much of the festival took place over the Jewish holidays. I will make sure to get hold of the discs and screen them myself.
I wasn’t there for the opening night was on Shabbos, but I spoke to several people who were, read several blogs and am quite sure that this is quite accurate.
If you don’t believe that the American left is basically totalitarian in thought and deed, well, you are delusional.
The film that most moved me and won the Best Feature Film Award was Obsession, directed by Wayne Koppins. Almost all the footage is culled from Arab television and reveals the pathological hatred for Israel, Judaism and America that is at the heart of the Arab world. Most fascinating is a brief digression to Nazi Germany where we learn that there was an all Muslim SS troop.
Most stomuch churning were excerpts from a mini-series, Al Shatat, that featured a modern day blood libel. Yup, a real live blood libel. It shows Jews in peyes slitting an innocent child’s throat in order to bake matzah for Passover.
“How many Arabs saw this disgusting mini-series? I asked Wayne when he came over to my house a few days later.
“Oh, a couple hundred million,” he answered, wearily. “It played during the holy month of Ramadan, so it had extra religious authority.”
Wayne was in the midst of making a deal with a distributor and when this film is released it should not be missed. It’s a powerhouse of a movie about radical Islam and its threat to civilization.
The winds of change are blowing through Hollywood.
The voices of sanity are being raised in the creative community. I’d like all my readers to be aware of the Liberty Film Festival. This article gives just a brief rundown on the events but you should go to the home page and definitely buy tickets.
I have spoken with Govindini Murty and Jason Apuzzo, co-directors of the festival. They are incredibly tenacious, dedicated and smart. The work they are doing is most important. Hollywood movies are powerful propaganda tools and have the potential to influence millions of people.
The Libert Film Festival is the anti Hollywood Film Festival.
If you love America this is the fesival for you.
If you love Israel this is the festival for you.
If you love truth this is the festival for you.
If you love movies this is the festival for you.
There comes a time when a dominant political ideology morphs into a dictatorship of thought. There comes a time when even common language becomes so debased that simple words such as “terror” and “terrorist” no longer have any meaning.
Because moral equivalence has so corrupted a segment of society’s notions of good and evil. In fact, Liberalism has become so intolerant that it now chokes off dissent.
Liberals are simply tyrants dressed in Dolce Gabbana.
And so there is nothing for good men and women to do but throw themselves upon the gears of this odious machine. Liberals and Liberalism are the voices of appeasement. Hollywood Liberals bear a grave responsibility; their disgraceful response to 9-11 and to the global War on Terror has been to capitulate to Islamic pressure groups and cast their movies with what? The old reliables: Neo-Nazi Terrorists (practically non existant), Irish Terrorists (who have, by the way, surrendered armed struggle.) Gosh what will we see next, Icelandic Terrorists?
Hollywood depicts every form of terrorist but the ones who are out there every single day murdering innocent men, women and children — Islamic Terrorists. If not for the Jihadists we see on the fine TV series “24” one would get the impression that the Muslim world is a force for peace in the world instead of the stew of state sponsored torture, terror, murder and destruction it truly is, if not by deed, then by its pitiless silence.
It’s odd, I’ve never ever heard one liberal express horror that not one of the twenty-two Arab states on the face of this planet have any Jewish citizens, nor would tolerate a Jewish citizen. In fact, these deeply racist Arab societies have all rid themselves of their Jewish populations — Yemen, Iraq, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey — first confiscating (stealing) their property and then physically expelling nearly a million Jews, thereby putting an end to communities whose glorious origins go back as far as the third century BCE.
Liberals seem not bothered at all by these evil Islamic anti-Semitic state policies. One can only surmise that Liberal education and a fanatical belief in what has become a debased multi-culturalism leaves the Liberal no choice but to excuse Islamic societies that are Judenrein.
No, Liberals are too busy protesting the Jewish presence on the West Bank. Which, by the way, always makes good copy for Al Jazeera. Make no mistake about it, our enemies recognize “useful idiots,” (Lenin’s label for Western liberals,) when they see them.
And so The Liberty Film Festival rises in the heart of Hollywood to counter Michael Moore’s lies, to defeat the defeatists, to arrest appeasers, to announce that not every writer and director and editor and actor and cameraman is an unthinking drone who follows the liberal party line.
Oh yes, I have been asked to introduce a wonderful Israeli film Entering Zion by two rising young documentary filmmakers K’fir Alfia and Alan Lipton of the Protest Warriors.
The film will screen Sunday, October 23, 2005, from 10:00am to 11:15am, with a ten minute Q&A afterwards. I will be doing a five minute introduction to the film, and moderate the Q&A with the filmmakers afterward.
I hope that many Seraphic Secret readers will attend this wonderful film festival.
How did I spend Emmy night? I was watching a DVD of the towering mini-series, Lonesome Dove. It is a great movie and I fear that that we will not see a film like this in a very long time.
Interesting article about being GASP! Republican in politically correct Hollywood in this week’s Jewish Press.
