Terrorism Doco Plays At Southern Cross 23 Oct


Free Movie Screening 7:30pm, Monday 23rd October 2006 Southern Cross Garden Bar & Restaurant Abel Smith Street, off Cuba St, CBD, Wellington


Alex Jones' latest documentary Terrorstorm is another forceful piece of filmmaking that again breaks new boundaries and will pave the way for more of the same from other independent directors.

Terrorstorm exposes how Governments have long staged false-flag terror events in order to achieve political and sociological ends.

The film takes us on a journey through the depths of history from the Gulf of Tonkin, the USS Liberty and operation Gladio through to the Madrid bombings and 9/11 and robustly catalogues the real story behind the government induced fable.

Terrorstorm features exclusive interviews with prominent names such as former MI5 officer David Shayler, Ex CIA analyst Ray McGovern, Activist Cindy Sheehan, Michael Meacher MP, Former Bush administration economist Morgan Reynolds to name but a few.

The film is the first of its kind to look in depth at last years bombings in London on 7/7 and raises multiple vital questions that will no doubt become just as prevalent as the inconsistencies of 9/11 have done over the past five years, due in part to Jones' previous two documentaries Martial Law and Road To Tyranny.

Unlike those two films however, which were necessarily lengthy given the overwhelming amount of smoking guns surrounding 9/11, Terrorstorm is under two hours in length and is arguably more accessible to an audience uninitiated on the facts surrounding false flag terror and its use past and present.

The raw footage taken during Jones' fact finding mission in London just days after the bombings took place is compelling. Witness the broken windows at Tavistock square, the still relatively deserted tube stations and the armed police on patrol everywhere. This part of the film excellently documents the initial state of fear that gripped London in the aftermath.

There is also more of a focus on the big brother surveillance culture that has finally been allowed to invade our society relatively unopposed since 9/11. The film not only unravels historical events but also takes its place as a zeitgeist document of our culture at this very moment.

Jones' presentation also represents a certain coming of age. Still ever present is the bullhorning brash in your face Texan activist, but he competes with a more assured, more measured and calculated Jones at times. This Alex Jones has perhaps realized he has now crossed more into a mainstream limelight, is reaching more and more people and that the "in your face" approach may not win everyone over.

Michael McWhirter's slick visual effects complement the material expertly and professionally, emphasizing that the dystopian futuristic political climate is not a distant possibility, but has already arrived on our doorsteps in the form of governments that use fear to manipulate their populations.

Jones this time opts for a more contemporary soundtrack which again places the film within its bang up to date context and will ensure an appeal among a new younger audience as well as those already familiar with his work.

The film concludes strongly and positively by offering viable solutions on how we can reclaim human dignity and freedom and prevent the global population from becoming the slaves of a prison planet.

Alex Jones has once again raised the bar as far as the subject matter in hand goes. Terrorstorm will appeal to everyone who has an interest in modern day politics and the war on terror, but chooses to search for the truth and not just a one sided explanation of major events.
