War on Democracy – John Pilger [01/10]

Price: $19.70

The War on Democracy is a 2007 award-winning documentary film directed by Christopher Martin and John Pilger. Focusing on the political state of Latin America, the film is a rebuke of both the United States’ intervention in foreign countries’ domestic politics, and its “War on Terrorism”. The film was first released in the United Kingdom on June 15, 2007.

 

Set both in Latin America and the United States, the film explores the historic and current relationship of Washington with countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia and Chile. Pilger says that the film “…tells a universal story… analysing and revealing, through vivid testimony, the story of great power behind its venerable myths.It allows us to understand the true nature of the so-called “war on terror”. According to Pilger, the films message is that the greed and power of empire is not invincible and that people power is always the “seed beneath the snow”.
