A Month of Film Screenings on:
9/11, Oil, War and Globalisation
Every Sunday in July at SIF (Sheffield Independent Film), films start at 6:30pm and 8pm
The attacks on New York and Washington on 11th September 2001 have been described as a "New Pearl Harbor" and they have been used to justify the war against Afghanistan and Iraq, the erosion of civil liberties in the US and the UK and the permanent "War on Terror".
Since 9/11 conspiracy theories have flourished, however one of the least credible conspiracy theory is the official narrative this selection of films explores some of the 9/11 smoking guns and the possible motivation of those responsible.

9-11 Open Your Eyes the War on Terror is a Lie (2004)
Filmed at the 9-11 International Inquiry held in Toronto in May 2004 this is a powerfull and moving hour long edit compiled from the 45 hours of contributions from 50 writers and activists.
"Speaker after speaker, from the 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani, the heroine of the 9/11 truth movement, to poets, philosophers, scientists, fighter and commercial pilots, former FBI agents, musicians, analysts, activists, politicians and lawyers, journalists and filmmakers, they assembled, each bringing pieces of the puzzle, and questions about September 11, 2001 -- what happened, what didn't happen, other pretexts for US wars, the history of its false flag operations and cover-ups, lies and treason by the ruling kleptocracy." – Roy and Karen Harvey, co-producers of this documentary.
Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime (2006)
Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime exposes the criminalisation of the US government and the links between the Republican party, drug running, the intelligence agencies and the 9/11 hijackers.
Largely ignored by the mainstream media, many of the disturbing facts surrounding the attacks of 9/11 raise deeply ethical questions associated with issues of accountability, justice and censorship in America.
"Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" may very well be the most compelling film yet outlining the disturbing and heavily censored facts associated with the worst terrorist attacks in American history. And while a grassroots movement worldwide continues to grow, and demand answers to the many unanswered questions, the public outcry for accountability and transparency makes this film, perhaps, the most important film of 2006.
Truth and Politics, Unanswered Questions About 9/11 (2004)
This is a lecture by David Ray Griffin, a professor emeritus of philosophy of religion and theology, at the Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California and it was filmed on 3rd October 2004 in Santa Rosa, California.
David Griffin has written many books including two on 9/11, The New Pearl Harbor and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions – this lecture is essentially a summary of his second book and it was given before the book was published. This video supplements the speech with added images and video clips to illustrate Griffin's points.
This video is available online from the Internet Archive.
The Oil Factor: Behind the War on Terror (2004)
After assessing today's dwindling oil reserves and skyrocketing use of oil for fuels, plastics and chemicals, "The Oil Factor" questions the motives for US wars in the Middle East and Central Asia where three-quartes of the world's oil and natural gas is located.
With exclusive footage shot on location in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, the film documents the spiraling violence now engulfing both Iraq and Afghanistan, a country conspicuously absent from the commercial media's news segments.
Interviews gathered throughout the Middle-East, Europe and the United States, including a Bechtel executive in Baghdad, also expose who is cashing in on the tens of billions of dollars requested from congress by the current administration of GW Bush.
With detailed maps and graphics, The Oil Factor features many experts and personalities such as former Defense Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, MIT professor Noam Chomsky, the Project for the New American Century Executive Director Gary Schmitt, Coalition Provisional Authority Chairman Paul Bremer, former Pentagon analyst Lt Col Karen Kwiatkowski, current Iraqi government official Abdel Aziz Al-Hakim and authors Ahmed Rashid and Michael C Ruppert.
Celsius 9/11 – World Takeover and the War of Terror
Celsius 9/11 was filmed at the 9-11 International Inquiry held in San Fransisco in March 2004 (Phase One) and Toronto in May 2004 (Phase Two). In addition to excerpts from presentations it contains intervews with participants and covers topics such as the militarisation of space.
An outstanding educational document With contributions by Carol Brouillet (communitycurrency.org), Michel Chossudovsky (globalresearch.ca), Bill Douglas (911visibility.org), Bruce Gagnon (space4peace.org), Jim Hoffman (911research.wtc7.net), Ellen Mariani, Jim Marrs, Michael Ruppert (fromthewilderness.com), Barry Zwicker.
Alarming facts are presented during the International Citizens' Inquiry into the events of 9/11. You will learn how the official 9/11 Commission report was little more than a whitewash!
Part One is The Official Story and it asks why were no fighter jets scrambled? and why did three towers collapse into their own footprints?
Part Two is The Big Lie and it asks how real are the terrorist threats? who is behind Al Qadia? and it looks at the US military strategy of Full Spectrum Dominance.
9/11 Breaking the Laws of Physics (2006)
This is a lecture from January 2006, by Physics Professor Steven E Jones of Brigham Young University, which addresses the collapse of the WTC buildings on 9/11, it covers:
9/11 and the physics of falling bodies and how it was physically impossible for these structures to have collapsed based on the conclusion that our government has given us. This video could possibly be the most conclusive work yet in disproving the 9/11 myth.
Steven Jones is a Mormon and supporter of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth (MUJCA) and they have a page on their site dedicated to him. He is also a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth.
Improbable Collapse (2006)
Improbable Collapse examines the increasingly widespread notion that the World Trade Center buildings were brought down using explosives. The film proceeds from an exclusive interview with Steven Jones, a professor of physics at Brigham Young University. Jones argues that the mechanism of the building collapses proposed by US government investigators is extremely unlikely, hence the title of the film. This is Jones's first film appearance concerning the issues raised in his influential research paper, "Why Indeed did the WTC Buildings Collapse?"
With Don Paul, who also appears briefly in the film, Hoffman is the co-author of Waking Up from Our Nightmare: The 9/11/01 Crimes in New York City.
Professor David Ray Griffin is the author of The New Pearl Harbor and Omissions and Distortions: The 9/11 Commission. Griffin spoke to standing-room only crowds in New York last October on "The Destruction of the World Trade Center".
Improbable Collapse critically examines the demolitions hypothesis and carefully evaluating evidence. In a series of powerful episodes, the film's stunning first scenes depict the rise of a movement to demand the full truth about 9/11, and the increasingly public clash of paradigms: The received story of September 11th is confronted with the evidence marshalled by the 9/11 skeptics.

September 11th Revisited
9/11 Revisited concentrates on the collapse of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers and includes news reports from the day and interviews with experts including Steven E Jones, David Ray Griffin and Jeff King.
It has been over four years since the worst terrorist attack to ever hit America, but has the story really been told?
This movie features eyewitness accounts and news footage that was shot on 11th September 2001 and was never replayed again on television... until now.
War and Globalization - The Truth Behind September 11 (2003)
This is a lecture, from 2003 by Michel Chossudovsky, a professor of economics at the University of Ottawa. Michel Chossudovsky is the founder of the Centre for Research on Globalization, the organisation behind GlobalResearch.ca an extensive website dedicated to exposing the true nature of globalisation. This video is a covers 9/11, oil and war, it is based on his book, America's "War on Terrorism". Despite being almost three years old it is especially pertinent today with the looming threat of war with Iran. Links to other texts by Michel Chossudovsky can be found on the Peoples' Global Action web site.
