The War You Don’t See (2010) (Sub español) HD

This is the story about a film which none of us were supposed to see. Not because the film wasn’t up to professional journalistic standards, or that it was of poor quality. It was neither of those. Against the odds and the establishment-owned international media syndicate, award-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger reveals one of the most damning indictments of American and British mainstream media. The content of this timeless film is stunning, and shows beyond any reasonable doubt, that our media are not only complicit in advancing conflict around the globe, but are actively engaged in pushing it on behalf of those who seek to profit from international conflagrations.

Documentary from John Pilger, laureate reporter with more than 25 documentaries, 11 books and countless articles published in media such as The Guardian, Daily Mirror, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, among others … The War You Don’t See, is a work that follows the influence of the media in shaping public opinion and how governments can manipulate it to benefit their own political agenda …

It’s a full length movie, but it is REALLY informing and well made. PLEASE bookmark to watch when you have the time, you won’t be disappointed!

“It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.”
Epictetus

Over the past decade, the documentary genre has become a bad joke. Fact is no longer a factor. As technology has developed, sights like youtube and vimeo make it possible for anyone to broadcast information, even if the information they express is based on lies. In an academic environment, a paper must have detailed references according to a set of university standards, but in a film, anything goes. The Art of Deception is an explanation of how a documentary is constructed to communicate truth, brainwash the audience and push an agenda.

The Art of Deception explains the way the media has become a puppet for certain people. For example, Al gore used his documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, as a puppet to persuade people that climate change is a real problem. The convenience of Gore’s investments is where the truth really lies, and not in his movie (Which is banned in UK schools because of its blatant lies and disrespect for science).

The US government used Kony 2012, or the invisible children, as a puppet to invade Uganda after they discovered huge amounts of untapped oil. This is explained in great detail in the documentary.

How can we ever KNOW if what we think we know is really a fact? How can we prevent being manipulated into believing lies? Why is there a need to lie and keep secret certain things about science, politics, religion, history etc? Do we live on the Devil’s playground? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts! Opinions based on lies aren’t worth much, are they? Or perhaps they are … to someone. How important is it to YOU to know what’s true and what’s not?

“The mark of a stupid man is not that he does not know,
it is that he chooses not to know!”
