“true lies”

"true lies"

This will be the first in a regular series of posts related to Sundance ’06

Starting to research the films a bit I’ve found the first one I am really intrigued by. Its called “American Blackout” and its by Ian Inaba of Guerrilla News Network (I blogged about Ian’s Eminem video “Mosh” more than a year ago). GNN says the film “follows the career of Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and investigates the current tactics used to control our democratic process and silence political dissent.”

Most tantalizing is a clip called “True Lies” (named after the book upon which the doc seems to be based) which they’ve posted on their site. The bit features poet Taalam Acey (“If GNN produced 60 minutes, Taalam Acey would be our Andy Rooney”, pictured right) and includes music from “The Soulsavers” and animation by Haik Hoisington. Check out the clip and tell me you aren’t intrigued…
