No, I'm not talking about the Facebook movie, but instead have a look at some of the shorts and documentaries.  These look notable...


The Warriors of Qiugang
Trailer

A rural Chinese village is being poisoned by an out of control industrial invasion.  People are dying.  The village will fight back.  Powerful stuff.

See the trailers for all of these at the links provided.


NA WEWE
Trailer

A dramatic and terrifying revisiting of the Rwandan genocide of 1994. 



Sun Come Up

Trailer

An island nation is sinking, and the people must flee.  The only place nearby is a dangerous land torn apart by civil war.  Will their culture die out, and will they go extinct as a result of Global Warming?


Poster Girl

Trailer

A female veteran renounces war and killing.  Some profound guilt is evidenced.


Let's Pollute
Trailer

Looks like a fun satirical take on the old educational cartoons.  In this case it's pro-pollution, pro-industrialization. 

And lastly...


Killing In the Name

Trailer

This one: I don't know about.  In a world of hyped propaganda about terrorism, I'm not very receptive to yet another anti-Muslim extremism slanted product, produced and championed by westerners.

From the trailer, we see that Killing in the name of GOD completes the title.  Whenever I see these I need to remind myself that western militaries are also killing, and are quite a bit more efficient about it.  Magnitudes. Epochs ahead.
