    The 12th General Election did not only result in the change of government in four states or the lost of Barisan Nasional two-thirds majority in Parliament. It brought along many practices never seen before in the governmant system. In Selangor, a body under the state assembly was formed to monitor the use of public funds. In the federal Parliament the increasing presence of opposition representatives has resulted in more serious debates. Today, UMNO and Barisan Nasional has started speaking the language of change. However, the real reform process is not as easy as voting on polling day. This documentary discusses the meaning behind those promised changes. Info on KOMAS - http://komas.org A Big Pictures production for Pusat KOMAS. 36 mins. Director: Anna Har Producer: Brenda Danker Executive Producer: Jerald Joseph Editor: Chi Too Pilihan Raya umum ke-12 bukan setakat melibatkan perubahan empat kerajaan negeri atau kehilangan kuasa dua pertiga Barisan Nasional di Parlimen.

        This is a film based on the book "Death of the Liberal Class" by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges. It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change. The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity. It was made entirely of clips found on the web. Music by Clark (warp.net/records/clark) Warning - this film contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.

            (Check out the follow up video : http://vimeo.com/30241489) (on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwWInp75ua0 ) We want to share insights into the formation of a new social movement as it is still taking shape in real time. The video was shot during the 5th and 6th day of the occupation. This idea to occupy the financial district in New York City was inspired by recent uprisings in Spain, Greece, Egypt, and Tunisia which most of us were following online. Despite of the corporate media's effort to silence the protests, and Yahoo's attempt to to censor it in e-mail communication, the occupation is growing in numbers and spreading to other cities in the US and abroad. Please forward our video to likeminded people via email, facebook, twitter - and make the voices of dissent circulate.

                David Simon, creator of the TV series ‘The Wire,’ talks with Bill about America’s capitalism crisis. It’s a reality check from a journalist who uses TV drama to report on America from the bottom up. "The horror show is we are going to be slaves to profit. Some of us are going to be higher on the pyramid and we'll count ourselves lucky and many more will be marginalized and destroyed."

A través de la experiencia personal de estas pioneras, se narra una parte apasionante de la historia de la participación política de las mujeres en España, y se analiza la situación actual, ya que el documental recoge también el encuentro entre diputadas y políticas actuales con algunas de las mujeres constituyentes, en un intenso debate. Un trabajo audiovisual inédito hasta ahora en nuestra historia, y que desborda actualidad. The documentary is about 27 women, members of parliament and senators, who were protagonists of politic change during Spain’s transition towards democracy, because of the parliamentary role which they played during the first constituent term in office in 1977 after the transition to democracy. Through the personal experiences of these pioneering women, the documentary reveals a fascinating side to the history of women’s political involvement in Spain and it analyses its current state. The documentary also captures a meeting between present female members of parliament and politicians and the mothers of the constitution, which culminates in an intense debate. A cutting edge audio-visual work that until now is unprecedented in the history of Spain.
