Feb 17 - The Devil Came on Horseback (2007)
Exposes the tragedy taking place in Darfur as seen through the eyes of an American witness, former Marine Captain Brian Steidle. Ultimately frustrated by the inaction of the international community, Steidle resigned and returned to the US to expose the images and stories of lives systematically destroyed.
Mar 9 - Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections (2007)
An explosive new documentary that shows how the election fraud that changed the outcome of the 2004 election led to even greater fraud in 2006 - and now looms as an unbridled threat to the outcome of the 2008 election. This film will change how you feel about the way votes are counted.
Mar 16 - No End in Sight (2007)
Chronicles the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerrilla war, warlord rule and criminality. Examines the principal errors of US policy that largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq. A first time look inside the White House, Pentagon, and Baghdad's Green Zone to understand what has become the disintegration of Iraq.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2008.
"Americans have heard from the generals, they've heard from the politicians, they've heard from the media... but they haven't heard the from us. From March 13-16, in the nation’s capitol, veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will gather to share the truth of their experiences with the American people and the world."
April 6 - Reel Bad Arabs:How Hollywood Vilifies A People (2006)
Explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs--from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding ‘terrorists'--along the way offering devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.
May 4 - The Fog of War(2004)
Former Secretary of Defense, Robert S. McNamara, takes us on an insider's view of the seminal events of the 20th Century. As US forces occupy Iraq and the possibility of additional military conflict looms large, this is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how the US government justifies the use of military force.
Won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2004.

May 18 - The War on Democracy (2007)
Award-winning journalist John Pilger examines the role of Washington's manipulation of Latin American politics over the past 50 years, demonstrating the brutal reality of America’s notion of ‘spreading democracy’ and that true popular democracy is now more likely to be found among the grassroots movements of Latin America.
