inter can be bleak. With cold weather,gray skies, and seasonal depression, it’soften a hard time for many folks to ﬁndinspiration or motivation to pursue the thingsthat seemed so natural and exciting during thewarmer months. But winter is also a greattime to regather and edify yourself, to solidifyyour ideas and develop plans for pursuingthem, to go into your cave only to reemergein the spring wiser and more competent. Hereare ten ﬁlms to explore during the monthsof frost that will hopefully assist you in this:
In this ﬁlm, producer/writer/director/everythingelse Peter Joseph displays the waysin which religion, politics, and money have been used to control human kind for, oh, say,the last few millennia. I ﬁnd the ﬁrst part inwhich Joseph reveals the astrological andmythological correlations that have arisen between most of the world’s major religionsthroughout the ages to be exceptionallyinformative, to the point of making themajority of belief systems based on hierarchicalempire’s of magical immortal deities evenmore laughable than they already are.
•Manufacturing Consent:Noam Chomskyand the Media
This ﬁlmis not only a greatintroduction to the person many havecalled the mostimportant intellectualof the 20th century, itis also an in depth look into the governmental policies that haveshaped our world. Noam Chomsky’sknowledge is beyondcategorization, anddirectors Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick do a fabulous job of presenting a manwho’s search for truth and conscience havelead him from linguistics (he’s the prof.emeritus in this ﬁeld at MIT) to syndicalistanarchism (which he outspokenly supports).

•The Devil Came on Horseback
This heartbreaking documentary takesthe viewer through the six month long journeyof US military observer Brian Steidle inDarfur, Sudan, as he watches governmenthired thugs, the Janjaweed, torture anddestroy village after village of civilians. Itthen follows him as he returns home to begreeted by glad-hand politicians and angrySudanese attaches accusing him of havingmade the whole thing up. The tragedy hereis not only the genocide being carried outagainst a people by it’s own government, but, as with Rwanda, the apathetic responseof those countries with the means to stop it.
